BREAKING NEWS

After 6 months of staying home we have decided to venture out and see if we can do so without catching the covid virus. We are going to Miss D's quilt show in Palatka Oct. 2nd and 3rd, 2020. I will be setting up with my featherweights and featherweight parts.  Then on Feb. 6th i have agreed to teach a featherweight class at Cinnimons Quilt Shop in Jacksonville, Fl. So if you are interested in either event mark your calendar.

 OUR NEWEST FIND FOR DEB'S QUILT COLLECTION!!!  It is from 1935 with an ice cream border.

This is a 1935 Dresden Plate quilt with a distinctive, yellow pattern , 4 pointed design in the center of each Dresden Plate, which is the same yellow pattern as in the ice cream cone border. This exact pattern and date was shown in one of our antique reference books. Lots of 30's feed sack materials in this one.
