“Old Quilts Made New” Special Quilt Display
sponsored by Pam Clarke, Teacher, Quilter and Collector!
Pam has been collecting vintage quit tops since she started quilting in1970. She just loves the older fabrics and loves finishing quilt tops whether by hand or machine. In her collection she has tried to keep the quilting in the traditional style of that era. She uses her quilting talents and makes no changes or re- sets the top unless it is in really poor condition. Pam says, “I feel that every quilt deserves to be finished, and it is my goal to complete all the ones I’ve collected.”
Her favorite quilts are Log Cabins, Dresden Plates and Grandmother’s Flower Garden. She has found these tops everywhere she travels; in antique shops, on E-bay etc. Pam has a few appliqué quilts in her collection, but these are very rare to find and in good condition. She teaches a class called, “Blending the Old with the New,” and it is one of her favorites. In this class she discusses how to finish these tops, fixing any problems before quilting and cleaning, along with a slide show of over 50 quilts. Check out all of Pam’s classes on the class schedule. Be sure and stop by this special quilt display area and see Pam’s fabulous quilts!
