As promised, here's a few more photos i took at QITB, last Friday...
and here's the lovely Linda....
One of the highlights of the day was meeting American quilt historian, quilt maker and author Leah Zieber.
You can imagine, my heart skipped a beat when i spotted her wonderful collection of antique treasures... crazy quilts, doll quilts, doll's & children's clothing, quilt blocks and lots of lovely old photographs.
take a peek..
here's Leah holding one of her dear little antique doll quilts...
I was drawn to this 19th century photo of a girl with her doll & pram, standing in front of a quilt, and holding a potted plant.
As Leah pointed out, the prize possession of the day most likely would have been the plant, not the quilt.
Among Leah's delightful collection of antique quilt blocks were a few sweeties that begged to come home with me.. how could i resist?? I also purchased a copy of Leah's debut novel 'Libby Morgan: Reunion' ~ the first in her American Heritage Quilt Series.
It was so nice to see Leonie again, busily cutting into her lovely reproduction fabrics... of course i had to have a few lol!!
these yummy seven came home with me...
as did 3.5 metres of lemony chrome for the setting triangles in my Panama Pyramid quilt.. very happy with that!
speaking of Panama Pyramids... here she is (Linda's antique beauty) tucked away in the corner.. i almost missed her!
It was so lovely to see her again... looking as good as ever!
What a wonderful day spent with friends, surrounded by so many beautiful antique quilts and treasures.
Sadly, it was the last QITB but if i know Linda, she's bound to have a surprise (or two) tucked up her sleeve :))
