A couple of weeks ago I headed
to Golden, Colorado to visit the
and was totally captivated by
"In the British Tradition:
Hand-Stitched Reproduction Quilts
by Carolyn König.
Aunt Green's Quilt
Carolyn is a well recognized quilter and designer
both in Australia and internationally.
Hertfordshire Quilt or
Mrs. Billings Quilt
I think what intrigues me the most
is Carolyn's use of fabrics.
1860 Marriage quilt
Each block is different and so intricate.
She uses so many different fabrics
to reproduce the original complex antique quilts.
Nineteenth Century Folk Art
When I look at her meticulous hand piecing
and applique, I'm in awe.
I was the only one at the museum that day
and spent a long time studying and enjoying
these elaborate quilts.
It was a very special treat.
I had to purchase her book
if for nothing more than
to enjoy the photos over and over again
and be inspired by her talent.
There's always the hope that one day
I'll stitch one of those patterns.
Until Next Time-
