I have fond memories of Waterloo . . .
In September 1987 The Heritage Quilt Project of NJ had one of its organizational meetings at the parsonage next to the Methodist Church.
Fast forward to 1997 when I worked one day a week at the Quilt Barn and documented the Village's small quilt collection. See pics below.
I'd visit the Seamstress Shop across the way and let the sheep out of their pen at feeding time :)
Of the six quilts in their collection, this Sunburst was my favorite.
Love the blue floral background fabric.
Basket with swag border.
Chips and Whetstones with a lot of fabric deterioration.
Star of Bethlehem, c. 1930.
Old Maid's Ramble Variation, c. 1880.
Split 9-Patch, off center.
I spotted that quilt in the Rutan Cabin on our recent visit.
I wonder what happened to the rest of the quilts?
