Featured Quilt - Ricky's Antique Inspired Quilt

Inspiration is a fickle thing and can come at anytime and anywhere. That's true for even the top quilters, like our own Ricky Tims. His quilt, Northern Lights, was inspired by an antique Amish quilt.

As he puts it, "Over the years I have often been smitten by antique quilts featured in books or magazines. Looking through a book, The Darwin D. Bearly Collection: Antique Ohio Amish Quilt (©2006 Darwin D. Bearly and BERNINA), I saw a photo of a quilt that was calling my name. It was based on a Nine Patch, with the blocks set on point in a traditional Streak of the Lightning set. My multi-color fabric was perfect for my vision and I used those in such a way that allowed the color to change and flow down each vertical column."
