The quilts came out for an annual airing this past weekend at Dudley Farm State Historic Park near Gainesville, FL. There were clotheslines full of lovely vintage and newer quilts on display at the visitor's center.
This is the kitchen outbuilding.
How inviting is this rocker on the porch? You could catch a nice breeze while stitching on a project.
And when the quilts needed washing, these tubs filled the bill.
I had to get a photo of this quilt because I hadn't seen one in a long time. Do you remember Chicken Scratch designs like this one that were formed by embroidering on gingham-check cotton?
More quilts on display.
I just love the Dresden Plate pattern, and this lively one was enhanced by the Orange Peel hand quilting. Such a lovely day spent in the company of old quilts!
