Karen,

If you click the link that Kris sent and read the comments below, your question will be answered. And, while I fully support the Alzheimer's program, the thought that people involved with their sale would suggest that you "re-purpose a small section of one of those 'golden oldies'...by cutting it down to a 9 by 12 size" for their art quilt initiative is distressing. An 'Art Quilt" is not an old quilt, cut down. I know this is a worthy cause, but where do you draw the line?

No, they won't distinguish the difference. Is this Calvin Klein all over again?

Kris, that's just one example of what living up in those cold climes of Maine can do for a person. Makes a body forward-looking. Down here in the Spanish Moss District, the heat works just the opposite way.

I hate to say bad things about Woman's Day, which sustained my love for American needlework in a dry season. But really, what kind of "dreams" would our "little princess" be likely to dream with that quilt as bed curtain? I haven't read Woman's Day in years, since it hiked its price from 10-cents an issue, but something like this would never have made the magazine's pages "in the old days."

However, I'm sitting here thinking about their use of an Ocean Waves quilt as a shower curtain. Some things are just too cute, aren't they?

gi,

Are things slow today in Loosiana? Too many pickets to count?

I'm just trying to soothe the horrid guilt I still feel from cutting that all white, stuffed and corded quilt in the early 80s. 'Calvin' said it was ok and a friend thought it would make nice pillows, like the one's she had seen in 'Country Living". I saved one beautiful pillow and the part that had the hole. And, I've grieved for it ever since.

I think our knickers are getting twisted.

I looked at the link Kris offered for the Woman's Day article and  agreed with what they suggested for displaying unfinished quilts and quilts  anyone had around 96 up to where they suggested cutting a quilt for a vanity  skirt or reupholstering a chair. My practical side said that taking an old  cutter quilt to reupholster a chair seat would have a limited lifetime if it  was already used well and starting to shred. But they didn92t say anything  about that as a disclaimer in the article. I like to see responsible creative  ways to display new and old quilts.

Would anyone buying the 93antique94 quilts from LL Bean really think  that they are genuine 100-year old articles, especially when they were available  in bulk? Would you spend $200+ for a spread for your family's everyday  eating table? The Woman's Day article did say to use a 93washable quilt94  for this decorating tip. (I92d rather buy a less expensive quilt from China as a Goodwill turnaround and use/wash it until it fell apart.)

I92m not a fashionista, and I don92t remember Calvin Klein attacking  our quilts. I do remember Ralph Lauren doing that!

On the other hand, we have not run out of quilts. They are not an  endangered species. There may have been some lovely quilts that were (sadly)  repurposed for clothing and pillows and stuffed animals before they were worn out,  but there have been plenty more found or made to take their place. I92m not advocating grabbing just any quilt for picnicking or making pillows, but some of our unfinished projects might be useful for this purpose --- get them out of the closet or stack of UFOs and give them some life. I am  not talking about using quilts that are prize-winning or museum quality or  have any historical significance. But we all talk about our fabric stash that will survive all of our intentions. There is no shortage of potential.

Some kind-hearted good-intentioned quilters on the Woman's Day blog  site offered that the Priority: Alzheimer's project might be a good way to purchase small quilts for decorating purposes or even to recycle some  quilt materials as a quilt donation for the AAQI fundraising auction. I did  not take this as a license to take a lovely full-size quilt and cut it up  into small pieces to sell. (Actually, for the auction sale price that many of these Priority quilts raise, $50 a square foot wouldn92t be a bad  turnaround for an old tattered quilt!) I agree that any quilt cut into the size of  a Priority quilt does not automatically make it art. But it can be  embellished and made into a fancy art quilt that would be a welcome submission for  the AAQI auction.

The current issue of Piecework has an article on "Needlework in Children's Literature" by Julia Baratta. One of the books mentioned is Show Way by Jacqueline Woodson. The description says : Jacqueline Woodson's ancestors pieced "show way" quilts holding secret messages to guide enslaved people to freedon. The book's powerful images of slavery and the civil rights movement in America, combined with the compelling accounts of each woman passing on her quilting skills to the next generation, reveal how each daughter found her own "show way" to share with others. Reading level ages 4-8.

Rest assured, I've just spoken with the Waterville High School  principal. They want to do the right thing and are NOT going to have the  1889 crazy quilt dry cleaned.

We spoke at length and he asked thoughtful questions. I referred him to  the state museum textile curator and mentioned several other contacts.  Including some suggestions on how to apply for some funding for the  project - or, have the local quilt guild apply on the school's behalf.

I had to chuckle, though, at the end of the call when he said, "Well,  thanks for all the information. You've just made this project a lot more  complicated." I think he 'got it'.

I just got back from an antique mall near where I live. In one booth, an "antique double wedding ring" quilt was on sale for $99. It was hand quilted. If you want to know where to buy, just e-mail me privately and I'll give you the scoop. Or go to your local Department Store and get the new arrivals from China. They probably aren't faded.

In the same mall was another quilt of solid pastel squares made of a very fine knit. It was tied to a backing that I think was likely rayon. The ties appeared to be white string. I wish you could have read the large sign affixed to it about how it was a "fine example" of the "19th century quilt" and how it had been dry-cleaned "without solvents to protect it from damage" and was now ready to hang and be treasured.

Amazing ignorance. Some of it likely willful, but who knows.

Finally back at the computer where I have photos filed. I am posting on ebo ard three dark background appliques that I have now. The navy background so rt-of-tulips floral was a kit to cut and sew; along the edge of some of the blocks is printed Stearns & Foster, the then-batting company that I guess  manufactured the kit. This is the only quilt pattern like this I have ever  seen among the thousands of appliques I have encountered over the years. Th e black background applique with the pink roses and nile green swags is unc ommon, but not unique because I have owned a black background applique twic e before in my quilt life; though I don't recall if the patterns were all t his whig rose-y design; I think someone has already identified who publishe d it. The 'House on the Hill' on the chocolate brown background is a patter n that I have seen once before on a yellow background, published in a book  and once in someone's booth at a show, so, also quite uncommon. This chocolate brown background is also quite uncommon! I owned a single lar ge figure sort-of-southern belle applique, where her huge skirt is ombre'd  shades of coral -- wonderful! That quilt was published in an old quilt enga gement calendar from the 1990s.I will post photos of the stuffed work menno nite wool floral applique now cut into blocks next week. Awaiting the resur rection of my website; webmaster's server blew up or something, love AND ha te this computer thing. Nice to chat with you all.

NYC is lovely lovely if anyone is planning a trip, come on down. The street are open again, now that the international leaders and their FBI security  cars are leaving town from after their U.N. session.

Me again, having just posted images on eboard (yay! it's a snap now, thanks) of two floral appliques and a house quilt on backgrounds of navy, brown or black. And, I discovered more floral appliques I have that are on darker backgrounds, so I posted them all, and hope someone out there can identify who published them.

One is a different version of the traditional grapes and grape leaves applique called Martha's Vineyard; usually it's purple on white in a diagonal grid formation; this one is vertical columns on a coral background. Is it the same publisher but a different iteration that was published, and by which company, or is it an individual's creation using elements of a published pattern?. Same for the Daisies on the green background; this one is pretty dense with applique in the center and framed in a diamond; I have seen just a couple of other Daisies but set up differently.

And lastly, a heart's desire that has gone missing from my shelves; it is the only time I have seen this configuration: the baskets are done in chenille embroidery, clipped and fuzzy, on a 1930s green background. Enchanting, but.....don't know where it went to, as I don;t recall selling it.

Laura: that last quilt you posted on the eBoard that you labeled "daisies" is really the "Dogwood" pattern from Mountain Mist. A couple of my old Mountain Mist Blue Books have colored photos and show that quilt with the green background so that must have been the suggested color scheme.

Laura, The white grapes on a coral ground is a pattern sold by Sciota Danner (Mrs. Danner's Quilts). She called it Wedgewood and suggested white applique on a blue background - typical Wedgewood colors. She also suggested using an eggshell background with natural colored purple grapes and green leaves. Of course, the customer could use any color scheme she wanted.

The quilt that really intrigues me is the navy background sort-of-tulips floral. The fact that Stearns & Foster is printed on some of the blocks really surprised me, as I thought that Mountain Mist produced only one kit - the Bicentennial pattern. In all of the literature I have from Mountain Mist, this pattern is not pictured in any of them. Does anyone else know something about this? Did Stearns & Foster sell other kits?

HI - after all this discussion, someone just brought me in lovely applique--a background of two shades of green with waterlily and cattails, beautifully executed. Will post a photo. More stylish than most.

And, since Carrie Fisher was the first person ever to buy a quilt from me in my first little booth/store, I feel this is quilt related, so I can comment on Eddie Fisher's passing. My mother adored his voice, it was on the stereo in our house often, and loved when people asked if we were related. Thank goodness they are showing some earlier photos of him at his handsomest, not after the plastic surgeons got to him.

Hi all -- anyone coming in to NYC for the 'Year of the Quilt' quilt exhibit ion -- first of several I am told -- at the American Folk Art Museum next w eek? It opens Oct 5; look at their site for a discussion of all the things  planned to honor quilts.

Their book is out, it's a larger square format; flipping through it looked  like there was one quilt per page, so each has good viewing room. Rememberi ng our discussion about photography in books, just in this one volume it is apparent there are variations in the photos; pictures were probably taken  at different times likely even over several decades, and maybe different ph otographers and conditions. There are many old favorites within, and some n ever before seen. Stacy Hollander is a skilled and thoughtful writer. I'll  keep you posted on its coverage in NYC art columns; let's see how the publi c reacts and if this gets significant column inches in the art and design w orld.

I have a technical question: I am considering changing the host server for  my website, as there have been too many technical glitches recently that my webmaster seems unable and unwilling to fix, aaaaargh. If the host is chan ged, does that mean one's history on google gets dropped if it came in conj unction with the first host, and then one has to start again under the ausp ices of the new hosting site? Or does one's history remain forever listed,  up, there?! Even they say nothing ever disappears from the internet, I thin k in this situation, that may not be true. Kindly email me privately if you have info or guidance please. Thanks.
