Texas Tech University: Alphabet Quilt

Learning Your A, B, C's

Find out about the Alphabet Quilt in the latest article from the Museum of Texas Tech University. Quilters often make small quilts for the children in their family. A baby quilt is usually the first project a new quiltmaker will undertake. Grandmothers also join the celebration of new family members by making quilts for their grandchildren, as is the case with this Alphabet quilt made by Martha Alma Baker for her grandson Billy Baker.

The Alphabet Quilt, designed by Florence La Ganke, was published in newspapers, generally over a 25-week series, as part of the Nancy Page Quilt Club.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Experience The 1920s

"Roaring 20's" by Judy Gauthier

Roaring 20's was designed by Judy for Studio E Fabrics using the Peppered Cottons line of fabrics by Pepper Cory. Pepper and Judy got together to talk about designing a quilt that used the new colors that Studio E was adding for the Peppered Cottons line. When they asked Judy her thoughts on a quilt, it was approaching the 2020s, which in the moment was not the most happy time. So she thought the quilt needed to be cheerful and make people really want to feel good about something. Roaring 20's is therefore named after the decade of the 1920s and reflects the prosperous times people were experiencing at the beginning of that decade.
