"Wild and Untamed"—An Exhibit from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Both Teri and I (Kara) have a love of Baltimore Album quilts—especially since we live in the great state of Maryland, where these quilts originated. Most of these quilts were created in a short period of time and have not just fascinated us, but they also intrigued the well-known father of occupational therapy, Dr. William Rush Dunton. Dr. Dunton believed that quilting could be therapeutic for women (and men) who suffered from mental health issues. He was also fascinated with old quilts, specifically the intricacies and detail of the Baltimore Album quilts. This interest led to groundbreaking research in ...

Quilt for an 1895 Wedding from Ann Quilts

I love a dated quilt.  I love a dated quilt with a family story (see full story below).  Combined together....well.... it's simply grand.

The fabrics have some preservation issues and staining throughout.  And at some point, a critter chewed a hole in the quilt and almost chewed a second.  The good part of that story is that the critter was polite enough to avoid chewing up any of the embroidered history.



I patched both places.  Here's one.


I patched the damaged black squares with an antique fabric (with white swirl print).  And I put on ...

Album or Chimney Sweep block – A Wedding Quilt Journey from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

Design Wall Monday - July, 13, 2020 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters! I made some progress on the quilts I am making for the Churn Dashers of Tidewater Virginia’s display in a quilt show next spring.  The pink setting fabric on this one is a Judie Rothermel fabric named “Judie’s Album Quilt”.  Seems appropriate that I named my quilt “Judy’s Album Quilt”.   This picture was taken before I trimmed down the outside setting triangle
