Hello Pieceful Quilters,
Just a quick show & Tell - Katie has been working on this gorgeous Eagle quilt from the new Summer Gatherings book from Lisa Bonjean of Primitive Gatherings. We are planning to do several projects from the book, but this one is almost finished. Katie has appliqued hand-dyed wool for the eagles and then used regular quilter's cotton for the rest. There is one more border of pieced triangles in the dark blue to round out the quilt. We have it all kitted up and ready to go for the demo tomorrow. Isn't it gorgeous?
If you google Antique Eagle Quilt you will see many versions of this quilt - here is one that is shown on Cindy Rennels website:
I have purchased several antique quilts and tops from Cindy at shows - in fact, there is a chance that I might have a line with Blue Hill that is based on one of the tops I purchased from her, and it will be named after her - cool, huh?
Here is another example of this style of quilt that I found on Kimberly Wulferts website - always a great source of information on the history of quilts.
I could go on an on, but why don't you start at Kim's site to do a little research of your own and share it with me! I have much more to share - so stay tuned!
