|Quilts from Mulberry Lane evolved as a business, owned by Carolyn and Donald Springer, from our love of antique quilts and our admiration for the creativity of their makers.
We started collecting antique quilts when Carolyn began quilting. A quilting instructor brought antique quilts to the class to illustrate certain techniques or design approaches to the students. Impressed that something so lovingly created so many years ago still spoke to her, we decided that we wanted to collect some of these works of art and began a search that still continues.
That was over twenty years ago. We now travel from the East Coast to the West Coast in our quest for unique antique quilts. Whether traveling by van or plane, we seek out only quilts that we feel have that certain look to add to our collection. Through Quilts from Mulberry Lane, we sell some of our collected quilts at antique shows, quilts shows and this website.
Many of our antique quilts were beautifully made, then, safely put away, so they are almost like new. Others were used as their makers intended, and we have hand-washed and dried them in a special procedure to safeguard them and emphasize their best.
We can furnish photos of some of our individual quilts for special requests and are on the lookout for any quilts that a customer may be trying to find in order to expand a collection. At shows, we also have a variety of vintage quilt tops and quilt blocks for sale.
