After a really good day of shopping with my Mom on Friday, who resides in the nursing home, the weekend held some anxious moments as she experienced some breathing problems...but things seem somewhat more settled as of now... so I have some time to share the very special visit our guild had with Dawn Ronnigen, Collector With A Needle. Dawn has a lovely blog and, along with her daughter, publishes many of the patterns for her vintage quilts. The patterns are wonderfully packaged with a full color print showing the original quilt.
Dawn arrived, suitcases filled, with quilted treasures - she brought some of her antique quilts from a collection of 300.
A modern version using Kaffe Fassett fabrics..
And also with wool on a great plaid background...
Ferns and Berries...one of my favorites & yes I now have the pattern!
And Dawn's stunning hand quilted interpretation in white...
Stay tuned for Part 2 - more photos and also what we did at Dawn's workshop the following day.
Happy stitching everyone! Oh that each day could be twice as long to do all the quilts in our hearts....
