Ever since I started quilting, I have adored the following, which is on display at Ayers Historic House in Adelaide.
Here is a brief description. "A beautiful patchwork and applique medallion coverlet is of unknown maker and history, dating from the 1830's. The whimsical border of 19th century ladies, hands joined as they dance around the edge of the quilt, is reminiscent of paper cut-outs made by children".
It is surprising how many great quilts we do have and thank goodness so many are preserved and treasured.
I have a few little chores to do, then off for a fun display and luncheon with Julia.
