Today's TQS Vintage puzzle is Row Houses by Flavin Glover and it is a cover girl. It graces the cover of A New Look at Log Cabin Quilts from C&T Publishing. It is also one of the twentieth century's best american quilts.

This quilt, created in 1985, was inspired by the "painted ladies" row houses in San Francisco. The whole design was created entirely from log cabin blocks. Flavin was aided by a picture postcard and suggestions from a paint store brochure. It was created from cotton fabric, machine pieced, and hand quilted.

Flavin has long been drawn to the log cabin block, she says, "Log Cabin quilts truly keep one connected to the taproot of American patchwork."

You can visit Flavin and learn about her incredible career at her website, www.flavinglover.com. You can order a signed copy of her book by clicking here.

Tribute to Tolkien by Sue McCarty has won numerous awards including the Pfaff Master Award for Machine Artistry in IQA Houston 2009. It was also voted Viewer's Choice.

The quilt was inspired when her brother convinced her to read The Lord of the Rings. She decided she wanted to create the piece for her brother, a Tolkien devotee of over 30 years.

The centerpiece of the quilt depicts Aragorn's victory, his coronation as the King of Gondor, and his marriage to Arwen.

It is a wholecloth quilt and uses a variety of threads, many of which are metallic. It took Sue close to 500 hours from design to completion.
