Published long ago....

More of my past unearthed at my Mom's....this is an article from Quilt magazine in September 1981.
I was truly in love with quilt-making!

The title says, "An Innovative Quilter-" the large bed quilt features a center grouping of fan blocks and lots of room for pretty handquilting! It was purchased from me by a dear friend and fellow quilter who was so encouraging to me in those early years, Mary Jo Dalrymple.

The 3 wall-hangings were Castlewall (2 versions in larger photos) and Clamshell (small photo). They published directions for my "clamshell" quilt.....which you can hardly see here!
In the 1980's we were always on the look-out for any all cotton fabric which would work well in our quilts...we could call each other and spread the word when we found some!
Today we have many gorgeous fabrics to work are some of the fabrics I will be making into quilts this fall....and winter, I'm sure! These are mostly by Kaffe Fassett, wonderful colors, design and visual texture!
