Roslyn's vintage quilt was found hung casually over a fence at
local weekend market, more than 25 years ago. With a toddler
in a stroller, Roslyn didn't spend much time looking at it, and
paid the asking price, not knowing if it was a real find. It was.
Quilt historian Annette Gero authenicated it as a hand quilted
Durham wholecloth quilt from the 1930s, valued at
considerably more than its $5 market price!
More photos are in this 2014 post, the last time
we saw this treasure.
|The crocheted lace butterfly is one of four, one in |
each corner of a supper cloth made by Roslyn's
paternal grandmother for her parents as a wedding
gift, about 1940.
|Denise found this hexagon quilt, of indeterminate age, in an |
op shop. She doesn't particularly like it, but didn't feel it could
be left behind! Vintage - probably not yet.
