Grandma Keller loved to quilt. In fact the first quilt I owned was one that she made for me as a teenager. Her quilts were fairly simple designs. I am guessing that most of them were made between 1950 and 1975. This wasn't a very popular time for quilting and cotton fabrics were not very plentiful. She used a lot of solids in her quilts. And they were all hand quilted.
This week I spent some time photographing a number of her quilts. This quilt measured 79" x 106". Definitely not a small quilt.
In the tutorial this week, I will share how I drafted the block and the quilt in Electric Quilt.
Here is one of the quilts drafted in EQ8. The block is asymmetrical -- which makes it a great candidate for the Symmetry tool in the quilt worktable.
Do you have a favorite quilt from a mother or grandmother that quilted? I would love to see pictures of your quilts -- along with their stories.
Feel free to share a favorite quilt in the related post on the Learning EQ Facebook group.
