Antique Quilting Frame
Thanks to our daughter-in-law, a what I am reckoning is an antique quilting frame has appeared at my house. I would love to hear from anyone having experience with such things as I have none. My dear friend Joyce is coming by tomorrow morning around ten to help figure it out. Joyce is very mechanical and a good seamstress to boot so I am sure we will have a good time of it! Not sure we will get it together but we will have a good time trying!!
I have been blessed with 2 frames, one large and one small. The pieces are all together which may make for a more interesting assembly. This frame was Julie's late Grandma Whitledge's and she used it well. I will try to do the same and am honored to have received it.
I treasure that is is made of wood and not plastic or metal. I think of the secrets it has heard over the years as it's owners hand stiched their scrap materials to form a cherished quilt of warmth.
Guess we will see what comes of this tomorrow!!
