Featured Quilt - When East Meets West

Sometimes the merging of two styles into one quilt can be greater than if you were to make two separate quilts of each style. Such was the case with Elisabeth Lenaerets and her unusually shaped quilt, Into the Sun from East to West. Featured in the In Full Bloom exhibit at Houston 2018, Elisabeth says of her design approach, "The shape of the quilt, an octagon with a medallion in the center, and the style of the embroidery and appliqués were the inspiration showing that Western and Eastern styles mix perfectly together."

Martha’s Vineyard – Time to Think about the Harvest


Learn About Mountain Mist

"This is the time of year that the harvest begins to come in. In far West Texas our landscape turns white as the cotton balls form among cotton fields as far as the eye can see. In other parts of the country grapes are harvested as this beautiful quilt reminds us. The Martha’s Vineyard pattern appeared on the batting wrapper for the Mountain Mist company beginning in 1931."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: From The Streets of Philly


"Reflections 3" by Natalya Khorover

Reflections 3 is inspired by the city of Philadelphia and is made entirely out of plastic. One specific plastic material used throughout is bubble wrap, and the quilt is held together with both hand and machine stitching. So while it might not all be plastic, Natalya still had to get the quilting part in somewhere.
