Baltimore Appliqué Showstoppers from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Last month, when Kara was here to teach at the Academy of Appliqué, we spent a day at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. That has been our routine for the past few years, but we were especially eager to go this year to see the special exhibit by the Baltimore Appliqué Society (BAS). And not just because our Fairy Tale Album was part of the exhibit; we knew what a treat it is to see the work of our fellow appliqué-ers in BAS! And we were not disappointed. Here is the exhibit for you to enjoy.

We so ...

How to find your own voice amid many from Asianartandquilt's Blog

A former client wanted to commission another art quilt. The theme she chose was abstract fireworks. Fireworks are common subject matter in many photos and artwork. Since there are only so many ways to portray exploding colors in a dark sky, the images can be pretty similar. The challenge becomes […]

A Maryland Album Quilt from Repro Quilt Lover

Back in March 2016, I wrote a post about a signature quilt I had acquired and called it “nearly” my holy grail of quilts.  It is a special quilt with beautiful Turkey red fabric appliqued in a fleur de lis pattern.  It also has lots of names and places that I’ve been able to research and trace the quilt to a church community in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.  There is still much to do with it but it will be set aside for a while as I think I have found a new, exciting project.  It is an album quilt from ...

I'm stitching from Repro Quilt Lover

Worcester Beauty - A Maryland Album Quilt Block C-1
Stitched by Taryn Faulkner

  I'm stitching as fast as I can which, unfortunately, is still pretty slow.  This is block C-1 from a pattern called Worcester Beauty-A Maryland Album Quilt.  It is an almost exact reproduction of a quilt in the collection of the DAR Museum (link to quilt images here) and was part of the extraordinary Eye on Elegance exhibition from a couple of years ago.  Debby Cooney is the owner and gave permission to the AQSG Maryland seminar committee to pattern her quilt as a fundraiser.  In addition, some ...

Elegant Geometry Exhibit - Taft Museum of Art - Post 1 from Repro Quilt Lover

Medallion quilt from the collection of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum
Seen at the Elegant Geometry exhibit at the Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati, Ohio

I like to give myself presents.  After all, I know exactly what I want and I don't judge my own quilt obsession.  In fact, I think it is perfectly normal.  You do, too.  That's what I like so much about you.

My special gift this year was a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio, to see the Elegant Geometry quilt exhibit at the Taft Museum of Art.  If you are a ...

A-MA-ZING Applique quilts! Photo heavy! from Humble Quilts

I brought my son and his girlfriend to the Portland airport yesterday and thought I'd go to the 
Northwest Quilting Expo since I was in the city. 
Cathy Erickson had a display of her Baltimore style applique quilts and they were the finest I've ever seen in person! Enjoy!

Fun quilting motifs. No sashing, but piping!

Some of the blocks were signed

Tiny tiny intricate piecing!

 These were no larger than a dime!

This one had some interesting (and confusing) blocks.

Any thoughts about what is in the basket?

It doesn't seem to belong to this quilt ...
