More antique quilts







brought to SMM by Jane Lury and her husband. The first one is a woolen appliqué, stunning images, like a comic strip and military scenes. The second circle shows emperor Napoleon. It looks as if it was made by one person and the woolen fabrics are (perhaps) uniform fabrics. How amazing, fascinating, and was the maker also the designer?
We can only guess, no written documentations.....

And then the tables filled with old quilts and mouthwatering tops, and Jane quietly giving info about the era and states were the quilt were made.
It's a great joy to meet her once or twice a year!





My ultimate favorite this time: an english quilt, certainly not the most intricated, but the kind that talks to me...




That's it for today, more to come!
Warm greetings,
Will V in Paris
