Klerksdorp Quilt Festival

Hello everybody! It's that time of the year again when Klerksdorp celebrates their quilt festival at the local museum! I was fortunate enough to take some photographs of the preparations and be part of it all. So here's a sneak preview of preparations in the warden's house! Njoy!!

The Warden's House gets dressed up so beautifully that one wants to just move in and make yourself at home!

 The diningroom....

I so love the old doors and knobs!

A beautiful wash stand with a folded quilt on top of it...
There are quilts lying all over the place waiting for a special place for display!

An old rocker with a pair of beautiful gloves on top

A bedroom in the process of being dressed up!

My Belle Quilt on this beautiful cast iron canopy bed! A proud moment for me! We have a bed like this in the Karoo; except that it's white in colour! I was sooo surprised when I saw this one!

Some close up detail of the cast - iron work. It's an art form. So beautiful!

A very tired but patient Bev having a break on the front porch before we moved into the main part of the Museum!

Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow with more quilts.....
