We took a ten day vacation to the Smokey Mountains/Blue Ridge Parkway area. We came across an antique store with so many vintage/antique quilts. I am going to share pictures with you showing the displays. I did not unfold the quilts for photos. Just too many crammed in small spaces.
The name of this pattern escapes me at the moment. The red and white is what caught my eye. A quilt top and not a bad price. Hand pieced, if I remember correctly.
The basket quilt was probably my favorite one.
I have often thought of purchasing the embroidery designs for the Bible quilt blocks. Some day!
This is the first of a few pictures of shelves within what appears to be a vintage cooler from a store. I would love to have this unit along a wall in my house with all those quilts in it. I don't know how good it would be for the preservation of the quilts.
The quilt with the orange/cheddar background looks intriguing.
I like this Log Cabin quilt. I don't often see one in an antique shop.
This chest had quilts all the way to the bottom. I took a picture of the chest itself but cannot get it to load onto my blog post. It was a good size hope chest.
The quilt shop was east of Canton, North Carolina. I did not make note of the name of the shop. Google Search is down right now or I would do a search for the shop name. The only problem I can see with the shop is that it is very musty smelling. Prices on the quilts did not seem out of line. There was a glass case with many Singer Featherweight machines in cases. The prices were too high on those in my opinion. I hope to get a chance to browse her next year and maybe unfold some quilts for photos.
I had a conversation with a lady who was checking out the quilts in the cooler. Her name is Rose and her sister owns a quilt shop in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. About 60 miles north of me. We have been by the shop twice in recent weeks but not when it was open. Rose was like me. Just a looker and not a buyer but it was fun.
Enjoy the rest of your day. Take time to sew!
