Here are a few more photos from the Antique Quilt Big Day Out:
a red and white signature quilt from one town in the US. I believe money was raised by charging for the honour of your name appearing on it.
The lady on the right is Dr Annette Gero. She is a well known Australian quilt historian, who is a keen collector without actually being a quilter herself.
Annette is standing in front of a typical Australian version of hexagon quilt, where the hexagons are not in a grandmother's garden path but just placed in a less organised scrappy fashion.
No, we are not formally engaged. Instead I now have somewhere handy to put my pins. More appropriate than sticking them in my decollatage. Thank you, Janet. She must have noticed that I frequently end up leaving the house covered in threads and pins. Does that ever happen to you?
