Zieber Quilts Petite Treasures.

While we were house sitting in Melbourne last month, I was very lucky to attend a fabulous quilty weekend at Quilts in the Barn. Leah Zieber came out from the US to present her weekend of studying cot and doll quilts and dresses. The textiles ranged from 1830s to1940s and we were privileged to hear the history of the quilts and also to study the fabrics up close.
  It was such a wonderful weekend to spend time with other quilters with a love for antique textiles. Linda Collins arranged the weekend and she was ably assisted by Bev Bannard with catering. I can share some photos with you but the best part was hearing Leah talk about the history of the textiles so if you get the chance to attend one of her talks make sure you go.
   I'll share a few more photos soon. In the meantime I'm busy decluttering so we can get the painters in and new carpet as well as working nights. Life is busy but we are looking forward to downsizing. We have decided to move to the outskirts of Melbourne to be closer to our youngest DD and good hospitals.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Jan Mac
