One of the biggest fundraisers for the Greenfield Historical Society is the annual Holiday Home Tour. Our neighbors Dorothy and John were on this year's tour, and I was honored to have a few of my quilts and quilt tops displayed in their home. Here, have a look.
This quilt top looks perfect draped over a bench in the hallway. It's a Thimbleberries pattern called Hourglass.
In a rocker in the master bedroom, my Jacob's Ladder found a place to show off. To this point, all the quilts are technically quilt tops. I didn't realize I had so many that were red and white until I pulled them all out of the closet. The next two are actually finished quilts.
This Churn Dash quilt was one I hand pieced and Grandma hand quilted. It is draped over the master bedroom door.
I think by now you get a sense of the age of Dorothy's house; it was built in 1853. I just love the woodwork around the doors and windows.
Even more impressive than the door and window woodwork are the three fantastic fireplaces in the house. The one above is located in John's office.
This is the fireplace in the dining room.
I forgot to take a picture of the family room fireplace on the day of the tour, so I went back over and took this picture after some of the decorations had been moved. It actually shows the fantastic woodwork more clearly.
So now you have toured Dorothy and John's home. It was easily the prettiest home on the tour - but I might be a little bit biased. *wink*
Happy Quilting, Friends!
