I have collected vintage quilts for years, and the value usually doubles if it has the maker's name and date on it. If you own quilts that don't have labels and you know who made them, you can add a label now. Sometimes, I write my name in permanent black ink on the quilt, then sew another label on top of that. I have even written my name and date beneath the hanging sleeve. I may be a little paranoid but I don't want anyone to forget who made that quilt!
Here are my students with their quilts:
Stephanie Brown (Tulip)
Johnnie Ruth Dixon (Violet)
Linda Keeton (Daisy)
Connie Hamm (Rose)
This class was made possible by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts. It is greatly appreciated.
