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 ...

Quilt Odyssey—Hershey, PA from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As I (Teri) sit here in Germany at Kara's computer, reflecting on the quilt show we just attended in the UK, I realized that I had photos from the show that I visited a few weeks ago that were waiting to be shared. The quilt exhibit at Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA, was absolutely exquisite this year. I was greatly inspired by the work shared at this show; I hope you will be as well. Enjoy this virtual tour of the exhibit hall.

The Merchant Mall did not disappoint.

It's always a joy to visit with Pat and ...

"Bits of Baltimore and Beyond" at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Last weekend, before we set up our classroom at the Academy of Appliqué, Kara and I (Teri) spent the morning at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. We enjoyed the many stellar examples of quilts on display, as well as some fabulous vendors and their offerings.

Today, I'd like to share the special exhibit by the Baltimore Appliqué Society: Bits of Baltimore and Beyond. These lovely quilts will be auctioned in the fall of 2018. Who knows . . . you may be so excited by these small beauties that you will find yourself bidding on one! Not only would you ...

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 ...

Back-Basted Basket Weaving from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

In November, I (Teri) taught a workshop for the Baltimore Appliqué Society on this lovely flower basket block, made by Mildred Tahara. I wrote about this stunning quilt in the post, In Praise of Jane Austen: An Album Quilt, including close-up shots of the blocks Mildred made that will be BAS workshops. Elly Sienkiewicz designed the patterns Mildred used.

As I began stitching my model, I pondered the basket. My favorite appliqué method is back-basting, so I knew that would be how I'd construct my basket. I studied the baskets on both Elly's and Mildred's models. (Elly ...

Odds and Ends from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

What a month! Many exciting happenings on this side of the ocean have kept me pretty busy. I (Teri) have been busily stitching class models for upcoming classes, one of which is pictured on the left,—this is, when I can find a moment to sit and stitch. Our youngest daughter got married a couple of weeks ago, so we had lots of family festivities. 

The tables runners we cut a few weeks ago turned out lovely. Maybe now that she knows how much fun it is to use a rotary cutter, I can begin to make a quilter out ...
