Advice please --

You've been asked to do an informal quilt exhibit at a church and want to
keep some pews open for walk through purposes and "block entrance" to the
pews that the quilts are in so visitors may look, but not touch. Most
churches have pew reservations ropes, but some do not.

What do you recommend (besides womanpower) in churches to block entrance to
the rows with quilts when there are no pew reservation ropes?

Think Fourth of July Motif too --

Also what do you guys carry your quilts in "To and Fro" to keep them safe
when you only have a one day very informal exhibit, but you have 20
quilts -- suitcases?

Thanks Sue

What about some of those lawn ornaments, like Uncle Sam, tin flag ornaments
and other Fourth of July items. I don't know if you have a Hobby Lobby
where you live but they have tons of things that stand alone and are tall.

Many, many years ago I bought an inexpensive duffle bag on wheels at
Wal-Mart. This thing is ancient, huge and very well used. Amazingly enough
it is still in excellent shape. Must have been American made :) !

Our route is from In to Niagara Falls, then over to Cape Cod for 2 nights,
then back to route 6 in PA and across the state on 6. My traveling
companions (32, 8 and 8 mos) would tolerate quilt stops, used bookstores
(for quilt books of course) or flea markets with possible items, etc., if
they are on our route. (And, I don't take too long).

Good morning all,

I am having a dilemma. Ever think you 'know' something, and then an
example comes across to you to blow that out of your head?

I have acquired 2 Album Quilts from Bergen County, NJ. The signatures are
inked. My very brief geneaology on the quilt has most of the people born
in the 1820s to 1830s. That fits, right? The fabrics to me are wrong.
In the blocks where the signature are inked are fabrics from the 1860s to
1880s. I can understand if sashing in newer or backing is newer...then it
was just finished later on...but the fabrics in the blocks are later than
what I would expect. Were these album blocks typically put together and
then signed...or were people asked just to sign the strip of fabric and
have it incorporated in the block?

One of the quilts has a bias binding, so that is screaming 'replaced' to
me.

I'll try to post on the eboard.

Thanks,
Dana

This morning I'm up super-early at 5 AM and nervous as a bird. The North
Carolina Quilt Flap kicks off at 8:30 with meet-n-greet and then commences
at 10. Do we know how many people are actually coming? No!! RSVP is an
unknown phrase here. I've done a radio interview and a newspaper story, lots
of personal notification, and over a hundred press releases. Last night had
the pleasure of dinner with Janice Pope (aka the quilt doctor) and her pals
Lynn and Brenda from Raleigh. I know other Raleigh folks have checked
in-wouldn't it be ironic if more visitors than locals showed up? Lynn Gorges
(Palampore) is driving-bless her-with a bum knee and she's bringing sweet
nibbles. Yesterday I cleaned tables, hung quilts, and worked with the
janitor at The History Place. Here's all I know: my friends are coming, we
have no idea what sort of quilts might walk in the door, and we'll take
pictures. I hope my voice holds out.
All for now-

Janice- I can strongly recommend Tim's Used Books in Hyannis and
Provincetown, and Heartbeat Quilts in Hyannis. The latter has several
rooms full of fabric, including a big bargain room. The JFK Museum,
several resturants, and a playground are within walking distance of the
latter. Osgood's in Springfield MA is also good, and you could leave
hubby and the the littles at the Basketball Hall of Fame. The Wright's
shop in Sturbridge is excellent, and is in an old mill with nice walks,
and a shady waterfall on site. The playground is perhaps a block long
walk.
Try a trick a friend used for the 8's boredom level. Teach
the child to read the map, and give the child a roll of quarters. Each
time the child asks, "Are we there yet?" he/she forfits a quarter. At
the end of the trip, the child has the remander of the roll to spend.

Seems logical to me that folks born in the 1820s and 1830s could sign a
quilt made in the 1860s to 1880s. That only makes them 40-50 years old. I
don't see a problem with the dating.

As to when they were constructed and when they were signed, there are
probably as many versions of that as there are quiltmakers.

Last week in Walnut, IA I saw a gorgeous set of unsigned album blocks and
the fabric was probably 1890-1910 or so. Imagine a future conundrum if
someone buys them and makes the quilt with 2008 signatures!.

I don't think your big problem is going to be what to use to rope off the
pews--ribbons, fabric ropes, all are good ideas. But if your church is like
many churches, they are not going to want you to use a pushpin into the pew
to hold the "ropes" nor are they going to allow you to tape the "ropes" in
place. This is all about not damaging the wood, of course. So you can make
holders for the "ropes" out of old clothes hangers twisted into whatever
shape works for you, then completely cover any wire that might scratch the
pews (especially the hooked part) with duct tape, then cover the duct tape
with ribbon, fabric, etc. to make it less unsightly. You hook the padded
hanger over the pew end, attach your "rope" to it, and there you have it. I
had to do something similar when I did my niece's wedding a year ago. If
this is not a one-time event, there are hooks that are sold in catalogs,
already padded and protected with clear tubing. However, they cost a lot
more than an old coathanger!

Thanks for the suggestions! Do we have to ferry to Hyannis? There is an

without finding a quilt related treasure or at least seeing some.

I have a parasol girl top - well done except the sashing is really really

No ferry is required to go to Hyannis. Ferries are needed for
nantucket and Martha's Vinyard. Both places are very expensive, and
getting a car on the ferry during high season can be problematic. There
was a room at Heartbeat Quilts about 4 m square with perhaps five
hundred 30s-40s repro bolts. Wright's also had lots of repro stuff the
last time I was there about four years ago. I'm sure you can find
something nice . The brown sounds unpleasant.
I was born c.1970, so have had enough of brown, avocado, and harvest
gold already. I don't know about ice cream shops, but Friendly's is a
reliable and reasonably priced local ice cream and sandwich chain.
As fior used quilt books, there's a nice shop in Kingston, RI on
138 across from URI. They also have a large children's section. I

Hi all,
When Meg Ryan was married to Dennis Quaid, they had a place in the Paradise Valley in Montana (over the hill from Bozeman, south of Livingston, and north of Yellowstone National Park.) Meg bought a quilt from Patchworks that had a fabric panel with a cowboy on a bucking bronco. I think Concord produced them. The quilt was made by Colleen Brophy. Dennis' nickname was apparently 'Bronco." Meg stopped in the store once and I asked her if she needed any help and she said no. But it was still cool.

Good Morning All,

The two versions of Windblown Tulips, the one by Webster and the one by
Mt Mist, differ mainly in the border treatment and the way the tulips
are constructed. Without seeing the border in the photo, it is hard to
tell which version is in the movie. Wish we could see the whole quilt. I
selected the Mt Mist arrangement based on the colors in the photo and
figured it was the later version, which I believe was more common.

There is a great deal of overlap in patterns from 20th century sources
and sometimes it is hard to know which pattern a quiltmaker actually used.

Regards,
Julia Zgliniec, Poway CA

Nearly every company selling quilt patterns or kits had a windblown tulips.
Most have slight differences. Boag had two versions, Hubert VerMehren of

Both of these books attribute this block to Nancy Cabot. What was her
longevity? From when to when?

I appraised a quilt this morning with this design although the flowers
were detatched from the circle. I know I was looking at a 19th century
quilt. I'm pretty sure Nancy Cabot was a 20th century persona.

Can anyone tell me if they're familiar with this pattern in existence

Nancy Cabot was Loretta Leitner Rising and she worked for the Chicago
Tribune.

I believe the Tribune's "New Pattern Service for Patchwork Devotees" a.k.a.
her "quilt" column under the name of Nancy Cabot appeared for the first time
on January 22, 1933. That first column featured a Pine Tree Pattern and a
Lone Star Pattern.

Nancy Cabot had three patterns that were very similar to the one in
Brackman's book

Mississippi Oak Leaves April 5, 1933
Milwaukee's Pride December 3, 1936
Devil's Footprint July 17, 1938

There is also another variation of this pattern called Wandering Foot - no
circle though -- look on page 373 of Brackman's book.

Loretta/Nancy patterns outlived her and were "borrowed" by other
publications for many many years and very possibly Loretta/Nancy "borrowed"
them from a previous source, but I do not have any information to share with
you about the previous source.

It does say in the Brackman book that this was also a Ladies Art Company
pattern -- the go to girl for information about Ladies Art Company is Connie
Chunn. She might be able to take the pattern earlier than Nancy Cabot's.

I have Connie's e-mail address and will give it to you off-list --

Hope this helps --

I happen to be very familiar with Julie's mystery quilt, because --- don't =
faint now ----- I've sorta kinda been working on one for years.=20
I dont know the honest to goodness name for it, but there was one in an old=
issue of a quilt magazine - maybe Traditional Quiltworks?
This is the probelm with having the computer in the house while the studio =
and patterns and stuff are in an entirely different building.=20
=20
There was an article about a man in Georgia who had one in his family, they=
called it the "A" quilt. Well, being a southern quilt, the oddball placem=
ent of lights and darks and disregard for contrast created wondrous permuta=
tions in each block. I was smitten, and went directly to an office supply =
store and had a rubber stamp made with the little triangle. It had two lin=
es; one for cutting and one for sewing. It was to be my "baggie" or carryi=
ng around project for the rest of my life. Alas.
=20
I began keeping a log of how many hours I worked - pulling bits of fabric s=
craps, stamping them, cutting them by hand, sorting into lights,mediums, da=
rks. I wanted some blocks to be totally random, and some to be very planne=
d, so that when you saw the quilt, it would be a bit like fireworks, moving=
, and the eye would search for patterns. Oh, 'twould be wondrous, indeed.=
=20
=20
But there was a flaw in the plan. To get the planned blocks pieced, they h=
ad to be laid out and picked up piece by piece, Just-so. Which made it non=
-portable. I tried ironing the eensy bits to freezer paper to carry, but t=
he tiny diamonds distorted when pulled from the paper, I tried laying the =
blocks out on flannel, and rolling them up. Didn't work worth a flip. SO,=
somewhere out in the cottage lies a green plastic bin with two bee-jillion=
diamonds and a time log that began back in the late 90's. =20
=20
I still dream of making that quilt. =20

Teddy,
Have you ever thought about laying out a block and then threading them on a=
piece of string - running the thread through the middle of each piece?
You place a knot in the bottom of the pile which has the last piece you add=
.
As you piece (or partially piece) a row you pin or possibly put a stitch or=
two in to correctly connect it to the previous row. That is what you do wh=
en you can not finish the row and attach it at one stitching period.

If the triangles are equilateral make a chalk mark on the edge that goes UP=
.

Am I making myself clear?

If not and if this idea interests you ask me to clarify further.
Quiltingly,
Kay Sorensen

I want you to finish this quilt so in 1-200 years when someone is researchi=
ng this type of quilt they will find more than one or two separated by many=
, many years, each done with fabrics of the era.

Re Teddy's version:

I too have the start of one (somebody else's start, early 20th century
probably, family member) and didn't realize it, looking at the completed
quilt posted on a board. The center (or large triangle apex or "A" top) is
slightly different from Julie's in color arrangement, not in geometry.

There were fabric scraps included with the triangles, and I assemble one
large triangle from them, just to see how to put it together. I threaded
rows of cut pieces together, which is, I guess roughly what Kay describes
because that was how I had done before with quilts-of-many-pieces.

I've never heard a name for it. Have you heard "A," Teddy?

Was there a magazine called TRADITIONAL QUILTWORKS? When?

Haven't time, but GEORGIA QUILTS would be place I'd look for traditional
patterns from South. Maybe look at those hanging on fences in the Irwin
book, too.

Oh I wish this had not come up. I kept ogling that photograph because
something seemed familiar. "Get thee behind me, Satan" is what I'm saying to
myself right now.

I don't think this is the quilt to take to the nursing home, lest one be
shipped out to a darker farm.

The other day I was browsing through one of my favorite warehouses,
SCRAP San Francisco, looking for old packs of bias tape, when the
woman helping me search came across several industrial-size rolls of
cotton twill tape. She told me she had cases and cases of it to give
away if I knew any quilt related organization that could use it. It's
the same stuff we used to attach velcro to and sew onto quilt backs
for mounting at ESPRIT. Does anyone know of a museum that uses twill
tape for anything?

Subject: quilt flap report - very long
From: palamporeaol.com

The Carolina Quilt Flap was a total and complete success! We had 43 people for our event from NC, VA and SC. I think that Susan from Morganton, NC got the prize for driving the most miles. We had folks who were just there 'cause they liked quilts and had a couple in their family, new collectors, seasoned collectors,?and then we had Kathy Sullivan and Jane Hall from Raleigh who are appraisers and book writers. It was a fabulous mix!!!! Most of them didn't know about QHL or AQSG. We hope they are now converts to both.
Pepper Cory out did herself getting it all together with PR and organization. YEAH PEPPER!?I sort of fell thru the cracks because I had a torn meniscus repaired 2 weeks before the event. (I got the torn meniscus carrying boxes of quilts at the Southern Quilt Conference in Ala. I thought you only got that kind of thing from falling down stairs or being a super athlete...... Nope --- so watch it when carrying those quilts and walking over bumpy carpet!!!)
?I provided lots of moral support, homemade muffins and lots of quilts to view.
We had 3 presentations scattered through out the day. Pepper did a presentation on "The Color Orange in Quilts -- especially Southern Quilts". Janice Pope (Raleigh - quilt restorer) did a presentation on the restoration of quilts. She discussed when you should restore, what you should do, and how to do it. She showed an example of a quilt she fixed for Pepper and one she did for herself. Great work! I did a presentation on Alamance Plaid quilts and the production of plaids in the Burlington, NC area from 1853 to the early 1900's. We all had lots of show and tell to go with our presentations.
We had lots and lots of people who brought quilts. We saw all types covering well over 150 years. As Pepper spoke about ORANGE we saw her examples (quilt top with pieced trees with triple sashing and orange background) ?and then those with orange quilts came up to show their quilts with orange. There was an adorable flower basket from the 1920's with diagonal blocks of orange. Kathy Sullivan showed her 7 sisters with orange, red, etc. and an Alamance Plaid back, and she showed her killer teal and brown princess feather with orange centers. Pepper showed her NC Lily with orange flowers and fabulous pomegranate (green/orange) winding border. Pepper also showed her variation on the Carpenter's Wheel with oranges and teals (can be seen on Pepper's site or blog or my website ---www.textilepreservation.com). There was an outstanding Whig rose that was done in reds, yellows and greens. It was made prior to the Civil War. Then I showed my Whig Rose that is all pieced.(It even has pieced/inserted stems for the rosebuds.) ?It is done in orange, yellow, brown, teal with triple sashing and checkerboard corners. I took a chintz quilt that was made in Pamlico County (east of New Bern). It has triple sashing which consists of a strip of orange. The blocks are buttonhole stitched with double quilting. The chintz is 1850's.?I also took a piece of Chintz fabric that was found in a dumpster in Tarboro, NC. I have never seen the chintz fabric in any chintz books or quilts. I would date it early 1800's. Well......Jane Hall brought a fabulous chintz quilt with lots and lots of little chintz triangles with a wide chintz border. She purchased it in the mountains of NC several years ago. The chintz border was the exact same chintz as MY chintz fabric. Her quilt had been washed several times and the chintz was no longer glazed and the colors were faded, but it was definitely the exact same chintz. What a find for both of us!!!?
We saw 2 Love Apple quilts done in the teal, brown and orange combination. They were from eastern NC. One that was made in Bethel, NC had a "killer" border with hearts. I have a very similar one in my collection that I didn't take.
We saw several red and green appliques that were pre-CW. We talked about how often the red and green applique patterns of the pre-CW time period were often seen in the teal/brown combination post-CW.
Pepper was given a log cabin quilt that day that was made in NC. It was a log cabin that was totally irreverant of lights and darks in order. Very pretty! Then we saw 3 or 4 that were true to the light and darks and created the designs we are familiar with. One was from Conn. or NH. It had fabulous orange borders.
There were a few from the early to mid-1900's that were Dresden plates and fans done in lovely colors and with great precision. We saw one Bethlehem Star that some said was probably a kit quilt. It was set in an orange border.
I had a quilt that had a couple of quilts (Alamance Plaid) inside of it, so that was a fun topic to discuss. There was also one with a tobacco fabric (gauze) backing.
Janice Pope brought a quilt that has created a "stir of research"?with the Raleigh quilters. The pattern is?primarily an applique. An example of this unnamed pattern is on page 95 of the NC Quilts book published from the documentation project done in 1986. The quilt is also on the back of the NC book. Kathy, Janice, Jane, and others have rounded up 13 of these quilts over the?past?20 years. Most of them (or all of them?) have been made in Alamance County, NC. It is a combination of a?Democrat Rose/Whig Rose/Thistle. Along with this we also saw?a quilt of this pattern that Kathy has in her collection. Kathy also brought?a Cotton Boll similar to the one on page 94 of that book.?
We spent much of the day flipping thru the NC?QUILTS.? We saw lots and lots of triple sashing and checkerboard type blocks joining the sashing.
Many photos were taken so we will hopefully?get together a?"showing" for the?website in the near future. That isn't my forte so someone else will have to do that.??
The event was held at the History Place in Morehead City. Pepper did a great job?selecting the site. They were fabulous hosts.?It is a?wonderful small museum with exhibits that focus on the life of the people of Carteret County. They even have an adorable tea room where many of the participants had a delicious lunch.??
We finally did it, and now we can't wait to do another one. No telling what will show up then.
We definitely need to get together an Alamance County trip to go to the Alamance Museum, Glencoe, and some churches who did lots of quilting. The trip is being fantasized about already.
I know I left out some details ---- those of you on QHL ---- jump right in and add to this.

details. It is most frustrating to read plus it takes much longer to
download your mail. There are those of us on just dial up and it takes
forever (well it seems that long) to get our mail. Thanks to Virginia
for suggesting this. Thanks to those of you who do! Even if you just
click on "reply" you can delete the excess before sending!

I really do prefer my Digest Version. Every morning I get it to read at
one time and the topics seem more coordinated. Then I can turn off my
computer and face the rest of my routine boring day! Your letters really

Hello, has anyone ever heard of the Quakertown Art Stamped Goods Co.? I
have a quilt top with that name stamped in the seam allowances. The
design is marked in blue - small little dots - not a solid line. Is is
similar to a Rainbow Quilt Block, but not exactly like them.

Let me know if you have heard of the company - google comes up empty.

Thanks. Louise
