My friend Ingrid and I visited some antique shops over the weekend. Of course I always look for quilts and almost never find any that are in good shape for the price or to my liking. Have you noticed that almost everything these shops carry these days is glassware or dinnerware? Or hankies. At least that's what I seem to find in the shops around here. I would love to see more quilts. Doll quilts, especially, but I'm never that lucky.
Here's some different stuff. I loved these knitted animal hats, LOL. Reminded me of Lamb Chop - remember Lamb Chop??
Aha! They're upstairs!
I didn't love any of them well enough to buy. I thought this one was sure cute though, even if it was pretty tattered.
I really love to see hexagon quilts. I am wondering if anyone is interested in doing a hexagon challenge or some other type of paper piecing in the Yahoo group this year? We were just talking about it because someone brought it up in the group. Don't worry, it would be a small quilt.
This is going to be a busy week for me, starting with a local presentation tonight a little northwest of Chicago and then a trip to Indianapolis later in the week. Maybe I'll try stopping at a couple of antique shops while I'm there if I have time, if the dogsitter doesn't mind my taking a little side trip, LOL. Don't need any dinnerware, hoping to find some quilts!
