We continue our selection of quilts exhibited in 2019 at the Houston International Quilt Festival as part of their 45th Anniversary, the Sapphire Anniversary. The Sapphire Celebration exhibit is described as:

"Quilters have long used the color blue to symbolize trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Sapphire is also the chosen gem to celebrate 45th anniversaries—which International Quilt Festival is doing this year (2019)! These new and antique blue and white quilts will be suspended from the ceiling in a spectacular and unforgettable display."

To be a part of the exhibit, quilts had to fit the following criteria:

  • Entries may be Traditional, Modern or Art.
  • Entries must have been made between 1974 and 2019.
  • The minimum size is 50” x 50”

Please enjoy the second quilt from the exhibition by an unknown quilter.

Beautiful workmanship. Blue and white is my favorite color combination. This looks so simple until you look at the quilting.

My heart just fell when I saw this quilt's story. It was made during my adulthood and yet it still says Unknown Maker. How very sad that this talented quilt maker has been forgotten so soon.

Handquilting always adds a special quality to a quilt.
