QuiltMania Comes to Visit

Last month I got a phone call from France. QuiltMania editor
Carol Veillon was on her way to the Houston quilt market.
 Could she drop by to interview me?

This Friday????

I corralled some willing friends (fans of the magazine) to help dress the set
at the new house.

We hung our Paducah prize-winning dog quilt.

Quilts everywhere...

After a flurry of activity things looked pretty good.

Carol was primarily interested in my antique quilt collection.

They photographed a few reproduction quilts.

Here is photographer Guy working with one of Roseanne's Smith's
star quilts.

Combination Log Cabin/Crazy about 1900
The new living room became a photography studio.
Is this not a fabulous quilt? I've got room to hang a lot of quilts now.

Zig-Zag quilt of 60 degree diamonds, about 1915.

I never get to see these so it was great to see them up.

Carol and I went through the quilt closet.
Deb and Linda hung quilts and Deb photographed.

Here's a mid-19th century ten-pointed star.

Pretty soon all was in gorgeous disarray

But we all had fun, including Dottie Barker.

We are planning the article for spring, 2015

  10. Hi Barbara,
    I was happily surprised to see that you're the owner of the "Zig-Zag quilt with 60 degree diamonds". I've had a picture of that quilt, from somewhere, taped into a notebook for over 20 yrs, (pre Pinterest era) still with the best of intentions to make my own version some day. Love the simplicity, and the golden yellow...and the stripes....

    Congrats on the article in QuiltMania!
