Quilting Overload 1973

Exhausted from Quilting

This is truly a time capsule of awesomeness.

Sunset Books put out “Quilting & Patchwork” in 1973, and these are the color pictures from that publication.  I have to tread lightly when it comes to quilting, because my Mom, my oldest sister, and the stunning Mrs. BelRedRoad all love it.  But after viewing these photos yesterday, even my Mom called the photo above “dreadful.”  So I figured I could poke a little bit of fun in any case.
