More Reproduction Quilt Bloggers

A few weeks ago I asked for suggestions for reproduction quilt blogs. Readers came up with many, particularly in Europe. I spent a lot of time scrolling; learned a lot, even if I couldn't always read the language. I now know how to enlarge a photo in html code and how to make a whoopee pie, a New England delicacy I didn't even know existed until last summer.

Here is the list:

One of the Mary Mannakee blocks from Deb's "Needles, Sticks & Hooks" blog

Deb's working on several series quilts including the Mary Mannakee quilt. To see what the Mary Mannakee quilt looks like (it's a signed album quilt in the collection of the Museum of the Daughters of the American Revolution) do an images web search for the three words Mary Mannakee quilt. Everybody's doing it.
Buy a pattern at the gift shop at the Museum of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Thank you so much for putting Vicki's and my blog on your list. Can't wait to look up some of the others you've mentioned. You've made my day, and it's my birthday, so that's a bonus.

How can we get any sewing done when there's all this eye candy to look at!!

Please visit my blog to take a peek at my quilt using repro fabrics. http://appliqueandpatches.blogspot.com/2009/09/two-down-one-to-go.html
My blog is not devoted to just reproduction quilts as I tend to make whatever catches my eye.
Great list of blogs which I will be visiting.

Deb said...

I'm thrilled that you have listed my blog on your site. Thank you so much. And now some new sites to visit - so inspiring.
