I’ll be at the Heritage Quilt Guild in Crown Point, Indiana, Tuesday (October 16th) for  the presentation “Quilt Detectives.”   Members will bring in their antique and vintage quilts, and we will examine them for clues  to determine  when they were made, style, pattern etcetera.  This program is a lot of fun!
