And in many ways, we owe it all to those who came before us, making amazing quilts with amazing stories out of what they had on hand. Ideas and patterns passed one to another on bits of paper and cardboard cereal boxes. We appreciate their determination and vow to pass on their legacy!
With that in mind, we have a "bed turning" every year at the Woolley Fiber Quilters show with vintage quilts and their histories. Teri Bever, quilt historian extraordinaire, leads the team and creates a narrative for each quilt. Here are photos from this year's showing (two per day at 11 and 2), ably assisted by Linda Stearns and Noni Moody. It might be the most popular event at our show!
Thanks for the education and the visual candy. Be sure to see our bed turning in 2019 when WFQ celebrates its tenth quilt show!
The team! Noni, Teri, Linda.
