My camera was not flashing right at the beginning of the presentation, but eventually I changed the setting and got better pictures. I didn't include very many from the unflashed ones because the quality was so bad but these are the pictures in order...they went from oldest to newest--roughly.
I LOVED the look of this one!
This was a seven sisters quilt and I learned that the seven sisters were the seven seceeding states from the union.
Huge and gorgeous!
I was so excited when my quilt came up that I didn't take a picture of it, but this is where it fell in the presentation. I have previously blogged about this quilt and told the story of it. I was absolutely fascinated to hear that Barb thinks it is from around 1924 (not 1955 or so as I was thinking since my grandmother got it from my great grandmother in about 1958) as the fabrics are from around that time. I am now wondering if this wasn't a quilt of my great grandmother's for many years before she passed it on to my grandmother (not her only child--a daughter, but the one that became my grandfather's second wife when she died way too young) and how exciting to know that! I want to get this individually professionally looked at now!
A lot of the pinks had faded in this quilt, but so pretty!
