Caryl Schuetz AQS Appraiser Lecture and Quilts

On Thursday evening at the Dear Jane Retreat, we were treated to an interesting lecture and slide show about quilts during the Civil War by Caryl Scheutz, Certified AQS Appraiser from Indianapolis.

After the lecture, Caryl showed us 5 of the antique quilts from her personal collection.

You can find Caryl at www.quiltvalues.com

Interesting borders on this one.

The table is in a bad spot, but if you look under the table you can see that one diagonal row in this quilt has the baskets upside down.

Just love this Princess Feather.

This is Caryl in the following two photos, but sadly I only got photos of her back.

A quilt made of signature blocks with no signatures.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today.

These are all wonderful! And on the Princess Feather quilt, it looks like the green feathers have turned grey, but only in parts! Am I seeing that right!?! Or were those feathers pieced? So interesting!

These are just gorgeous quilts. I really love that first one and the Princess Feather.

Thank you so much for sharing them with us and also for the link to Caryl's site!

Merry Christmas!
