Quilting Vintage… Oh My! by Lori Lee Triplett
Click on the blue link above and scroll down to Nov. 12, 2016 for a great article with two points of view about quilting vintage pieces. I’m honored that she opens up with a picture of my work, this blue and white 1940’s-50’s Bridge Tablecloth will always be one of my favorite projects. Now in a private collection, Rita Carter was kind enough to loan this tablecloth to the Special Exhibit: For the Love of Linens at the IQF Houston last week.
What are your thoughts? Are you OK with quilting these vintage beauties and putting them on display or do you think they should be left in the linen closet?
Pinterest, Instagram and so many web sites have wonderful examples of the move underway to bring the “old” to the forefront with a tribute to those who created before us. I’m a big fan of honoring the original artist by showcasing his/her work in this manner.
Happy stitching, and until my next post, hope it’s a great day!

I love what you do to use all the lovely linens. I think that’s lovely and I’d like to do some of the same. But…I also love to use my old linens just as my grandma used them.

Thanks LJ! I only cut up vintage pieces that have been well used to the point of being ripped, torn, stained, threadbare. I see it as giving them a second chance to shine!
