Quilts In The Barn

 Today Mel and I headed off to the yearly Quilts In The Barn hosted by Linda. This year's theme was "Inspired by Antiques". Once again there was a wonderful display.
 
 Mel and Anne.
 Look who we bumped into. Fellow NOTY ladies Adrienne and Helen. We also saw Betty and Annette 
and then Sue and Liz from Mill Rose Cottage 
but I didn't get a photo of them.
 
 
 
 
 
 This quilt was made in 1866. 
Those brown marks are scars from a fire!
 We met Brenda Papadakis who wrote the Dear Jane book.
 The quilt on the left was made around 1880.
 
 
 Of course, we finished off with morning tea!

I hope you enjoyed the tour. 
There were so many more quilts to see.
