Off with the Old, on with the New Quilt

Every Friday, spread out among two quilt frames for social distancing, the quilters bring needle and thread to fabric to raise funds for the Tobacco Valley Historical Village. The quilters have been meeting and quilting in the old school house for five decades. Current hours are Fridays, 10:00 am to 2:30 pm until mid May. Visitors with masks are welcome.

The quilters are available to add that special hand quilted touch to your treasured quilts tops for a fee. Bring in your quilt top to be placed on the quilt schedule.  Available for sale at the village are recently added curated fabric bundles priced at $1, $3, and $5. Added to the online store inventory are 2 new flannel quilts. Selling almost as fast as they are added to the inventory are pine needle baskets. As always there is a good selection of cozy baby quilts for that special arrival. -Patches

A striking depression era print quilt top

Recently the quilters finished hand quilting/tying a “Covid” themed related quilt (off with the old). Replacing the Covid quilt is feminine lavender quilt top with embroidered blocks of young ladies reminiscent of a bygone era. The quilt has been marked and the quilting begun. The second frame holds a quilt top with a striking pattern of depression era prints. A traditional cable is being stitched in the solid areas.
