Antique Quilt Heaven at AQSG

Four block eagle quilt (1840-1870) on the left
at Julie Silber Quilts booth

One good reason to attend the American Quilt Study Group Seminar, no matter where it is, is the Quilt Dealers Area. The best dealers in antique quilts from all over the U.S. show their stuff.

Kathy Metallica Cray and Julie Silber.
Julie's from Berkeley, California

A very interesting coxcomb and birds quilt (1840-1890)
that went in the first half hour.

Legacy Quilts, Xenia Cord from Indiana

Gerald Roy of Pilgrim & Roy from Vermont
with the famous Ninety and Nine Quilt from the 1930s behind him.

An 1848 New Jersey quilt from his booth

Julia Kelly Hodenius from Atlanta featured
a unique Georgia quilt with tombstones among the circles.
Is that a Portuguese blue stripe on the table? I didn't even notice it
till I posted the photo.

Here's a pile o' toile from her Pique Trouver shop

There were hundreds of quilts to see...

And then in a flash they were gone.


  1. American Quilt Study Group annual seminar is Quilt heaven.
    Love all the dealers and how accessible they are.

  2. Wow. I had no idea there were booths and dealers and all that. I thought it was all lectures. (not that there's anything wrong with that)
    Maybe its time I give more consideration to joining this group.

  3. Oh My Gosh - seriously would love to be among all those antique quilts and those who study and love them! It's wonderful to be able to enjoy it from my computer!

  4. Oh wow! I never realised this went on. Thanks for adding to my education!


  5. What an amazing display of quilts, would have loved to attend this show.


  6. Thanks for the pictures, Barbara. I used to see Cindy at all the shows I went to, but I haven't been to any of the big ones since 2013, when my best friend died. Most of my collection comes from Cindy's business! I loved seeing all of the beautiful quilts you captured here.

  7. It was fun to revisit those fabulous antique quilts!

  8. FYI- Gerald Roy is located in New Hampshire, not Vermont

  9. I never realised this went on. Thanks for adding to my education!
