Antique Amish Doll Quilt for March
Here is the prize of my antique doll quilt collection. Isn't this a little gem? I absolutely fell in love with it when I came across it in an antique booth. It is made of wool, wool blends and cottons and has a cotton flannel batting. It was definitely made by a child. It is in excellent condition. I just had Gerald Roy appraise it and he loved the use of color in it and thought it was a remarkable find. We are thrilled with it.
Speaking of Jerry, he brought a copy of his new book to show us. It is the book to accompany an upcoming quilt exhibit consisting of 60 quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy collection at the Fine Arts Museum in Boston. Here is the cover of the book. It is not out yet, but I will be getting it ASAP.
What I like about this book is that it gives you a brief description of a color theory and then has the quilts to put that theory into practice. The photos of the quilts are wonderful. I asked Jerry if the colors were true to the quilts and he told me that they were perfect. It is a lovely book.
Well, till next time..........
