Sometimes, I run across something that just peeves me. I ran across a quilt for sale this morning on Etsy. I have been annoyed by it all day and if I don't bitch to someone quick, I'm going to blow a gasket.
The first thing that got my attention is the word Vintage. I recognized this pattern as one that was designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. The quiltmaker did not give Anne any credit for being the designer. She admits to be making quilts since 2003, so the oldest this quilt could possibly be is 7 years old. I hardly think this qualifies as Vintage.
The quiltmaker states that she hand appliqued the designs. It is hard to tell but does appear to be hand appliqued, but then she failed to do much quilting on it. This quilt would not hold in in sort of cleaning process. Which brings me to her statement that she would dry clean the quilt as it has many embellishments. OMG, where did she learn to quilt? Who in their right mind would dry clean any quilt?
Lastly, this quilt is not very big. It measures 53 x 54 and she refers to it as a wall hanging. The price for this ........$725.00. Some quilters are just too full of themselves.
As Dennis Miller always says, this is just my opinion, I could be wrong.
