I’m hoping you can help me out a little bit. I’m doing a little bit of research about sourcing and buying vintage quilts.
Where is your favorite place to find/look for/buy vintage quilts?
Have you had success with online auctions?
How do you know if you are getting a fair deal? What IS a fair deal? What factors influence it?
Do you have any great quilts that got away? Any that you bought and regret?
Do you prefer buying quilts? quilt tops? quilt blocks?
How do you figure out provenance? Does it matter to you who made the quilt, when it was made, etc?
Any stories, advice, photos, etc. are much appreciated, either in the comments or via email: swimbikequilt at gmail dot com.
Thanks! And I hope to revive my Vintage Quilt Sunday posts this summer. I’ve loved writing them and getting to see fabulous quilts and quilts with fabulous stories.
