Mary Koval

Mary Koval is an american lady, who collects and sells antique quilts. This week she was in the Netherlands giving a lecture in Zutphen (she's friend of Petra Prins, who got, I think one of the most lovely quiltshops in the Netherlands).

I loved the lecture!!! Mary knows very much about fabrics, and she got beautiful quilts with her to show us. She's a very very sweet lady, not only interested in her own quilts, but also likes to talk about your quilts, new or old. The theme this year was: 'grandmother flowers". So I took my "grandmothers flower quilttop" with me, to ask if it was really made it in the '30s. And yes, it even got a few feedsacks in it. You can image I was very happy with the news. Maybe she's coming next year for a workshop in Zutphen, well they can put me already on the list.

Yesterday, gave me lots of inspirations to go on with my own "antique quilt collection". MORE PHOTOS

Lovely, lovely. Yes, we shall certainly have to visit there. And I will keep my eyes out for Mary Koval. Really a lovely quilt show.
