More Quilts and Coverlets

Here are some more pictures from Show and Tell at the hotel. None of them does justice to any of the quilts and coverlets that were there. What an incredible collection of textiles in that room!

Donna Stickovich made this stunning quilt from a center medallion and borders purchased separately. She added the orange to the borders to tie it together with the center, then quilted it and did the wonderful trapunto flowers.

Here Virginia Gunn and Xenia Cord inspect a coverlet owned by Peggy Whitmore. Virginia is a wealth of information on coverlets, specializing in ones made in Ohio.

Virginia brought these early 1800's quilts that were both great fabric studies.

I love this pink stripe.

Sharon Pinka brought this sampler stamped Berlin. You can't see the stitching, but the second alphabet has white thread twisted into the middle of the letters. Very intricate.

Here are details from a few more coverlets from Xenia.

It's a little hard to see, but these two are the same pattern. Very few of the white ones were made.

Next I'll cover the Study Day itself, with informative presentations, early 1800's textiles, and many more quilts and coverlets, including a Broderie Perse that's not to be believed.
