Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Crazy Quilt craze lately

Crazy Quilts seem to be popping up in a lot of auctions lately all over the country. 

I've purchased three in June and can't seem to get enough.

Unless a person sews, there is no way of realizing how much time went into their creation.

The quilt collector books seem to agree that the fad of the crazy quilt was a late victorian thing.

Silks, satins, wools, velvets....

All have the same format, yet some of them show greater skill and artistic ability.
