Unusual colours showcased at upcoming quilt show
EXETER – Antique dealer Jane Egan has kept an eye out for careful stitching, bold patterns and unique colour combinations to compile a collection of antique quilts over the past four decades.
The owner of Galt House Antiques in Goderich has amassed more than 100 quilts, with half of them coming from Huron County. Over the years, they’ve been harder to find. While she used to buy two good quilts a week at local auctions, she says she is lucky to find one or two quality quilts a year now.
Fifteen of those quilts will be displayed at the second annual Heritage Quilt Exhibit, April 11 to 13, at Trivitt Memorial Anglican Church in Exeter. Admission $6.
