Quilts In The Barn 2013

Quilts in the Barn 2013 is an annual event put together by Linda This year it featured Chintz and Dutch style quilts. I was there once before a few years ago. I should go every year because as my GPS tells me it's only 21 kilometers from our house. There were reproduction and antique quilts on display. Some quilts could not be photographed. It's interesting looking at the photos I took and the photos Carole took. It shows our preference of the kind of quilts we like or want to make. I will only add captions to some of them so enjoy!












 

Below are the antique blocks I bought from Mary and Joe Koval.


 

Four blocks and a single flower block plus a piece of vintage Chintz that I was told was from 1830! I also got a large piece of the Turkey red fabric from Quilted Crow. You can never have too much red! 


A better look at the Chintz piece. I will have to think carefully before I cut into it!


 

Here is a close up of the applique blocks. The stitching is really tiny. I love the fabric she used on the block as well. If you are asking what I plan to do with them, then I am asking myself the same question. Thanks Linda for bringing wonderful quilts to share with us. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. 

I had a great time at QITB, but only stayed long enough to see the quilts and a bit of shopping. Mr Notjustnat came with me so I didn't want him to have to wait too long. I took a picnic so we went off to have our picnic lunch by a running stream near by. Just as we packed up the sky opened and it poured. So we came back early for me the do my weekly cleaning! Someone has to do it!

Until next time
Nat

Nat, I love the vintage chintz, it's gorgeous. Yes, I'd think long and hard before I could cut into it, too! Beautiful quilts at that quilt show. xx
