January 3, 2009 Wild designs

Filed under: ◦Antique quilts,◦Friends,◦Vintage — sharon @ 12:17 pm

Last year we went to a meeting of the Mid Atlantic Quilt Study Group for which the theme was “Wild by Design”, after a quilt show which we visited as a group. For study, members brought quilt items that they felt fit the description. This is one of a pair of orphan blocks we bought years ago, about as wild as they come. We’ve never seen any others remotely like these.

It took a huge number of applique stitches to do all those serrated edges – whoever designed these was devoted to the task. Or maybe not, since we found only two.

I’m still trying to imagine what the whole quilt might have looked like.
