Thank you to everyone who wrote in about the beautiful bed covering featured in my April columns. (If you missed reading them, they’re posted below.)
My public library is a wonderful place for books, but the staff members are also great resources. One of the circulation librarians is an avid quilter. When I first saw the photo with the bed covering I immediately thought, “Carol has to see this.” I was right. With a single glance she said, “This isn’t a quilt, it’s a weaving pattern.” Just so happens her daughter knows a lot about woven designs.
The suspense is over. Carol’s daughter Vicki took a look and declared, ” It’s an overshot weave, a variation of a pattern known as Queen’s Anne Lace.”
Thanks also to the knowledgeable FamilyTreeMagazine.com Forum visitors who posted comments there.
