Every quilter has had that one quilt that inspired them to pick up the needle and try out this thing we call quilting. For me – it was a double wedding ring quilt made by my great-grandmother’s sister. While I never met my grandmother’s sister – her quilts were everywhere in our home. They were used (and abused) daily and many of them perished through the years.
A couple of them survived – and made their way to me. I cherish them to this day – I call these quilts that inspired the beginnings of our quilting journey – Quilts with a Story.
Do you have any quilts with a story that inspired you? if so – there’s a new kind of quilt show coming up and they are looking for quilts that have traveled through time and survived – to share their story with a new generation of quilters. Organized by the Tualatin Historical Society – the show runs March 9 – 11, 2023.
Interested in sharing your Quilt with a Story? Click on the Show Flyer or the Quilt Entry Form above to open and print the files. Don’t delay – the show is coming right up and show organizers would love to see your Quilt with a Story.
One final note: I have it on good authority that 2 particularly interesting quilts will be on display. These two quilts are in the collection of a local quilter – and were originally pieced and quilted by Laura Ingalls Wilder (Author of the Little House on the Prairie series).
