The Importance of Documentation

When I attend a quilt show and I am allowed to use my camera, I become giddy and take photos of everything I see that I like. Likewise, when I am surfing the Internet and I see pictures of antique quilts that I either have to have or have to make myself, I right click and save them to a special folder on my computer.

Unfortunately, many times most of the time, I don’t write down the maker or owner’s name or the name of the quilt. If it’s at a show, it’s usually possible to take a photo of the display card or refer to the show bulletin for the information.

I spotted this beauty one day a year or two ago. And, you are correct, I don’t have any information on the quilt. Do you know the name of the pattern? It looks like an antique quilt to me. I’d love to make this quilt, and I know I can draft the pattern when I put my mind to it. But I would LOVE to know the history of the quilt!

If you have seen this beautiful quilt before and know anything about it, please let me know in the comment section below.

Yes, I have learned my lesson.
