Improvised quilts at market
I took a new digital camera to market. it's smaller and even more user friendly than my old one. Instead of taking notes, I took pictures of things I liked. When I reviewed my shots, I was surprised at how similar some of the quilts I liked were. One was made of Japanese Daiwabo fabrics. One was at the Moda booth. One was made by Kaffe Fassett. (You'll be able to tell which is which.) Notice how similar they are to the Log Cabin quilt in the show, a log fence reproduction by Francine Pons. Her inspiration was a quilt in Barbara Brackman's book Quilts of the Civil War.
