Collector Plates With Quilting

P1060496 masked

Over the years, there have been Collector Plates issued with various quilting artwork.  Pondering .....how many quilters collect such plates and if there are enough of us to have a virtual Collectors Plate Quilt Show?

Do you collect such plates and have any with quilts on them?  Do they hold any special memories for you?

I've never noticed these plates. I probably will now that you've mentioned them.

I've not run across any, but, I do check out the collectors plates at the thrift stores, just in case one has a quilt or vintage sewing machine on it. I'll look harder now.

I might have one. I started getting some plates with kitties on them, but now they are in a box, another thing for the yard sale, lol.

I collected plates years ago, but I do not think any of mine have quilts on them. I do, however, have a picture with a quilt.

I have a large box of my mother's collector plates that I haven't looked at in over 20 years. Shame on me!! Now I have to wonder if there are any with quilting on them. Maybe . . . guess I'll have to pull out that box and look won't I?

No plates with quilts here. If I had one would I be required to dust it? If so, I don't want one...LOL.

I've never "collected" them -- but I do have one or two by chance... Great question SoCalGal!

I've never seen them, but I'm with Kelly, if it needs dusting I'm not letting it in my house.

Holey Moley! I just checked eBay for the set that I have (CHERISHED TRADITIONS) and the set is listed at $325! Mine are on the wall of my sewing room.
