Antique Crazy Quilt
Thanks so much for the well wishes regarding my open heart surgery. The surgery was a bit more involved than I originally thought. In addition to replacing the heart valve, they also repaired an aneurysm and two days later inserted a pacemaker. I am happy to report that I am on the mend I started cardiac rehab and am excited to report that I was able to do 3.6 mph on the treadmill on Friday. So my heart appears to be doing fine. I am just waiting for the breastbone to heal. I am also still struggling a bit with my energy level -- so have been slowly getting back to my quilting business.
Antique Crazy Quilt - an Electric Quilt Tutorial
I saw a photo of this quilt in the latest issue of Quilt Mania. The quilt intrigued me, so I was able to do a little more research about it online.
I loved the superimposed circles on the background of a crazy quilt, which provides some semblance of order. The quilt was made of wools with a cotton backing. A note sewn to the quilt says "Mrs. C.H. Boyer from Aunt Hannah Walters".
The quilt is from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, circa 1890. It measures 78" square. It appears to be either Mennonite or Amish in origin.
For my next two Electric Quilt video tutorials, I thought I would share with you how I recreated the quilt.
This week I will cover the setting and the crazy quilt blocks. I will also share with you how I imported a fabric collection from Moda. Here is the link to the Moda fabric swatch collections. You may want to copy and save this one in your bookmark favorites, as this was a bit tricky to locate:
Next week I will share adding the circles.
