I got a tip from one of my quilt history lists to check out Pook and Pook's upcoming auction. I think most of the quilts and needlework are in lots 300 and later. Look at this charming pieced and applique'd crib quilt.
And this Whig Rose. I love the birds in the border.
But for some reason, my heart is captured by this simple Shoo-fly doll quilt.
The Elizabeth MacCullough Hervey Quilt is my favorite Baltimore Album Quilt. It's also one of the quilts the Baltimore Applique Society has made a pattern of to offer for sale. I finally saved up the money to buy it a few months ago, only to find out I'd just missed it, and it was sold out. Now, because of so many requests, the BAS is willing to reprint this pattern if they get 25 orders for it. If you think you will ever want to make this quilt in the future, now is your chance to get the pattern. If you are interested or have questions, email Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can read more about the quilt, and the other patterns they have made available, here, under the Past Activites tab.
By now you've probably heard about the new John Hewson fabric line from Andover on another blog or website. I've been counting the minutes till this was available early next month, and wondering if I should find somewhere to pre-order it so I'm not left out in the cold. :( Then my friend Sharon sent me a link to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. The bad news is the fabric arrival is going to be delayed a bit. The good news is, if you pre-order from them before Nov. 1, you get 20% off the fabric price. !
Don't miss the chance to get this great fabric, at a great price, and help support one of our increasingly endangered Quilt Museums. IMHO these panels won't last long. Thanks, Sharon, for the tip. ;)
