Seen at Market #2: Quilts
In the quilt show: Sampler with Yellow and Red Calico, by unknown piecemaker, quilted by Kathy Colvin. Pieced, mid 1800s, quilted in 2003.
This quilt in Sandy Klop’s booth is one of many on display by Moda designers from a half-square triangle exchange initiated by Edyta Sitar (learn more about that in Edyta’s new book Friendship Triangles, available in November from Landauer books). When Edyta describes her plan for half-square triangle exchanges, you can't wait to try it.
Linda Jenkins of Piece of Cake demonstrates a technique from the new book Appliqué Outside the Lines. Their innovative pieced backgrounds in bold colors caught my eye first - it's so exciting they continue to improvise!
