Today I did quilting demonstrations at our local museum with a couple of other members of my quilt guild. Other than the building being really cold it was fun. On exhibit are quilts made in the souther U.S. The photo is one of my favorites. It has eightpointed stars set in cheddar then in a dark blue which is sashed by a grey/teal blue. It was made in North Carolina. I don't think it has ever been used or washed...the browns and madders are in perfect condition. The quilting is tiny and done on the diagonal with three lines about 1/2 inch apart with the sets seperated by almost and inch.
I'll post more of the quilt photos during the week.
