Labels...do you label your quilts ?..
I borrowed the above book from our library..great book, a great source of information on Vintage quilts, pages and pages of beautiful hand made quilts ...but sadly a lot of the quilts that are featured have "maker unknown" with the picture...
How lovely it would have been for these quilts to have credit given to them , for all that time and love that went into creating them... perhaps they may have been able to have their families traced and the quilts passed onto them...I felt so sad each time I read.." maker unknown"...
There are no patterns in the book...but tips on collecting quilts, understanding quilts, cleaning and storing your quilts.
All the old favourites are featured in this book...the beautiful Logcabins, Grandma's Garden, Dresden plates, Pinwheels, Baltimore and many many more..
So, it makes me think and realize how important it is to label your quilt...I know I have a few without labels..a Double Wedding Ring quilt that I made for our 40th wedding anniversary..now this is one really special quilt that I should have added a label to.
I know I shall have to a day just adding labels to my quilts..
Saturday morning here in Australia, Klosjes day......I must trim and press the Klosjes that I have done so far..
Have a great day...♥
