REMEMBER FALL MARKET?
I was looking through my camera the other day, and saw some pictures that I am pretty sure I did not share with you from my last trip to Quilt Market.
This was one of the most amazing quilts. An antique Yo-Yo quilt. It belonged to the people who own Retro Clean. A soak for vintage linens. They used it on this quilt, and then had it on their table for a display. Retro Clean is a small, 'newish ' company. I don't think they are quilters. Very nice people, however. The quilt was on the table, over a blue plastic table cover. This is the edge of the quilt.
This is part of the quilt lying on the table. I put a dime on the plastic, so you could see the size of those tiny yo-yo's! Pretty amazing, don't you think?
This is what each square looked like. Sweet little yo-yo 9 patches. And the wonderful 'sashing'!
Someone stole something electronic from their booth. Either their ipad or their credit card machine. I am not sure which. They were pretty sick about it. I think they are super lucky it was electronics, and not this amazing piece of history! J
