I just returned from a trip to Falls Church, VA, outside Washington, DC. I was invited to come down and give a presentation to this great group of quilters. My talk was titled: "Pennsylvania Patchwork Pillowcases and Other Small Treasures". I showed pillowcases from my collection, representing about 100 years of antique PA textiles. The earliest was a dated piece from 1829, the latest was from 1900, with a note attached with maker's name and year presented. I also showed some of my doll quilts made from antique fabrics, along with the antique pieces that inspired them.
I was treated well by the lovely ladies of the guild. We had a great Thai dinner before the meeting and luscious frozen yogurt afterwards. Thanks to my host Amy for making very comfortable arrangements for me and for their attention and interesting discussion from the guild members.
