Quilter's Attic

801-292-1710

Recently, we had a customer, Nancy, come to the shop and share her wonderful find!  As her mother-in-law's basement was being cleaned out, 18 Dresden Plate Appliques were found, wrapped in newspapers dated 1932!   Research revealed that the fabrics came from clothing manufacturers -- who would ship boxes of scraps from their "Dusters or House Dresses" to women throughout the country.  We had several customers in the shop when Nancy brought the Dresden Plates in and they were thrilled to see the beautiful prints and fabrics.  Upon close inspection, we could see where the fan pieces had been pieced together, when her great grandmother (in-law) was making do with with the scraps she had.  

dresden  They are beautiful works of art,
that have now spanned several generations!

It has made me wonder how many treasures are out there, waiting to be found.  Have you been so lucky?  If you have a "treasure" you'd like to share, please e-mail us the story and a photo.  We'd love to share your story with our quilt lovers!
