An Adopted Album Quilt

scan0031
This is a quilt top that I purchased back in the late 1970’s – early 80’s.  I loved the scrappy look of it, so I hand quilted it as it was and kept it for several years until I sold it.  You can still find some good buys on quilt tops if you know where to look.  Tim Latimer, also a hand quilter from Michigan, has found many beautiful tops and blocks and given them life by hand quilting them and seeing them to completion.  It’s kind of like adopting a rescue dog or cat.  You take it the way it comes to you, you give it love and attention so that it can be the best it can be.

Go ahead – adopt a quilt!

  1. Wow, I wish I could find a top like this here in the Netherlands! This year I will be visiting the US for certain and try to find one. You did a great job on this second chance quilt. Fingers crossed here for your studies.;-)
