Used Bookstore Finds
Jennifer Goldsborough also wrote Lavish Legacies: Baltimore Album and Related Quilts in the Collection of the Maryland Historical Society. This book was the result of the exhibition of the Maryland Historical Society's (1994-1995) collection of Baltimore Album quilts. The Antiques magazine article was because of this exhibition and Jennifer Goldsborough's study and book. I had heard of Lavish Legacies and have always wanted to read it but the book is quite expensive on the secondary market. Well, jackpot # 2 at the used book store.
This copy of the book has a torn and taped cover, hardly noticeable.
I have been studying and enjoying it ever since.
I picked up one more old book that day, Forget Me Not, A Gallery of Friendship and Album Quilts by Jane Bentley Kolter, published in 1985.
I have just browsed quickly through it at this point, but am anxious to read it also.
I have managed to get another Ladies of the Sea (pattern by Sue Garman) block completed, the America.
I also completed one more block for the red and green album quilt.
Happy Stitching All,
