There is NO history - only that her sister's Mother-in-law was an antique dealer (many years ago).

At the age of 10, her grandmother introduced her to quilting, which began a lifelong interest.

With the encouragement of friends, Eileen began producing her own line of patterns under the business name of Peonies Needlework Crafts.

There are many books out with beautiful color prints of quilts from various eras but until now we couldn't examine an extensive collection of fabrics.

Seeing and touching quilts like these always makes me hold my breath while I try to absorb as much of it as I can. Several clues made her think this quilt was really old.

And I ALWAYS wish the maker had signed and dated her work. (In the quilt business I guess we say anything older than 1840 is REALLY OLD.) One clue to a pre-1860 quilt is the fringed edge.

She has always spent much of her time in art and craft pursuits. Are you a fabric collector, quilt collector, appraiser, or antiques collector who needs to know specifics about fabrics or quilts? It will help you identify, date, and recognize antique fabrics and their uses in quilts and clothing.
