“Sweet Sixteen” Quilt by Ann Hermessarah
Originally from Illinois, Ann Hermes moved to Ambler, Pennsylvania where her obsession with antique quilts and textiles began. She has been collecting and quilting for many years and specializes in small quilts made from antique and vintage fabrics from her collection.
The Simply Vintage project illustrates a reproduction of a late 19th century crib quilt from her personal quilt collection along with a mini version of it.
