Thanks to Pam Weeks, I now have a fullsize photo of my Favorite piece in the New England Quilt Museum Exhibit at Maine Quilts. See how huge it is?! And I have photos of the information cards!
And a few block closeups:
I remember a rose fabric like this from "back in the day" early 1990's. And I know definitely I had that blue fabric peeking out on the side when I opened my shop in 1990.
Now for the Baltimore Album.....there is stippling in two corners of the quilt (wish I had taken a closeup of that!). Bea thought the quilt border needed more quilting so she would sit in a chair next to the bed and add quilting. Unfortunately, she was unable to finish.
Notice how the feather border is done! Saw this within a few days of observing that same method on a Wreath, instead of a vine border) on an Amish quilt (Facebook I think) .....don't recall ever noting this design so it was odd to have seen it twice in a few days!
Was asked to show the backs of my Half-Square Triangle blocks........
Used regular nested seams for the rows and then pressed the assembly rows open.
Spun the center of the 4-Patch which makes the seam allowances all go in one direction. When assembling the 4-Patches into a top, it should be all opposing seams if I have figured correctly. As one commenter noted, blocks could be larger 16-Patch and it would also work!
More quilts from the show next time, as well as a lovely customer with a lovely quilt for Show & Tell!!!
