|Photo from 55 Famous Quilts from the Shelburne Museum
The photos are from two old books that I just bought on ebay - and they are completely adorable.
I started to mark them with sticky tabs but gave up as every picture needs a tab :
They will find a special place among the rest of the 'family' - two groaning shelves of quilt history books. Most of these books have sticky tabs marking inspirational works. That kind of links to the end of my last post when I raved about my discovery of Pinterest - where "sticky tabs" are so nicely organised and accessible online.
I now realise I must be about the last person on the planet to have discovered Pinterest - very slow on the uptake I know! So...that was me a week ago.
Since then I have read various comments on different blogs about Pinterest and see that not everyone is happy with willy-nilly public pinning. Being a cautious type, I am taking that on board and am now being...well... cautious, in my pinning. Just by the way, I am only a hobby-quilter - no teaching, selling, publishing (apart from the blog) and have never entered quilts to win prizes in competition/shows etc - just obsessively driven to make and share quilts. It is wonderful to find that someone else is remotely interested - makes
you me feel a little less mad doesn't it??
I know - Enough yabber!! Here are more pics:
