Quilting

The Charleston Museum (oldest in the country!) has a quilt in its collection called the Sara Rosenstock Wedding Quilt.  It’s in a Baltimore Album style but much more folk arty than the typical Baltimore Album.  A few years ago the museum allowed one of our guild members to copy the blocks and produce patterns of them.  Kim also taught classes at the museum – they did four blocks at a time – which is also how the patterns were published.  I believe there were 20 blocks in all.  The quilt pics below are my friend Janice’s rendition of four of the blocks using a modern twist on the fabrics and colors.  I feel very privileged to have been allowed to quilt it.  It will hang in our show, A Celebration of Quilts, on March 1 & 2.

    Beautiful quilt – but I’d expect no less from you and Janice! I actually didn’t know the story of the quilt & the fact it’s patterned after one at the Museum so it was nice to read about it. Like the photo of Callie Cat. She sure is pretty!

    I”ve conquered resizing enough to get pics to upload again. I’ll try to get this post in better shape tomorrow when my brain isn’t so fried.

    I can’t wait to see the quilt up close and personal. Callie looks so sweet in the pic. You can tell she looks a little woozy still. Sheila
