Quilts have a language all their own. If we listen closely, they speak to us. They slow down the world and take us to a place of beauty and wonder. If you doubt this, just watch people at a quilt show and take in their reactions.
Pueblo, CO (PRWEB) November 16, 2010
A new online vintage quilt gallery, vintagequiltworks.com, is open for business. Offering late 19th century to mid 20th century vintage quilts for sale, the new website also features an exclusive selection of vintage quilt blocks, vintage feed sacks procured from an estate sale, and best-quality silk thread.
“Any day is a good day when I'm surrounded by quilts,” says owner Pat Cook, who began making quilts twenty years ago but soon found herself drawn to antique quilt restoration.
Cook explains that vintagequiltworks.com is unique, as it offers high quality vintage quilts that are becoming rare and complete information on every quilt sold.
Vintagequiltworks.com also features a Quilt Score Card. This evaluation tool can be used by anyone to determine the condition of a vintage quilt. And while the Quilt Score Card may be destined to become the gold standard for objective quilt evaluation, Cook understands that what draws us to beautiful vintage quilts is not so easily defined.
“Quilts have a language all their own. If we listen closely, they speak to us. They slow down the world and take us to a place of beauty and wonder. If you doubt this, just watch people at a quilt show and take in their reactions,” observes Cook.
In addition to operating vintagequiltworks.com, Cook continues giving workshops on quilt identification and documentation. She is also a committee member of the Annual Southern Colorado Regional Quilt Show and the Pride City Quilt Guild.
All vintage feed sacks, quilt blocks and vintage quilts for sale at vintagequiltworks.com can be purchased securely and shipped within 48 hours of payment. Domestic and international shipping is available.
