Another quilt from the Special Exhibit My Joyful Journey, part of the Virtual Quilt Festival, December 3-5, 2020.
QUILT # 21: Stars in a Time Warp 90" x 90". Orignal design, machine pieced, longarm quilted, 2016 Quilted by Magnolia Longarm Quilting:
The Story: The blocks were a 2015 block of the week project from Barbara Brackman. Over 50 weeks she presented a fabric style or color and explained the history of that design. I made 2 blocks a week. When trying to decide how to assemble 100 blocks, I remembered I had this John Hewson reproduction panel that would do nicely. He was a fabric printer from Colonial Philadelphia, my hometown. Since by now I am known for making Medallion style quilts, it made the perfect center. All the rest of the borders I designed as the quilt grew. It was included in the Special Exhibit "In The American Tradition", Houston, 2017.
