A Quilt Block Challenge: Vintage Revisited by Mary Kerr
[Softcover, 128 pages] Published 2010, back in stock. What would happen if a set of vintage quilt blocks were divided among a number of quilt artists and each was left to create a quilt in her own unique style? In the spring of 2006, quilters of all backgrounds were invited to participate in just such a challenge. This book presents 117 quilts made from six sets of vintage blocks by 19 talented quilters (including Artistic Artifacts/Batik Tambal owner Judy Gula), who committed themselves to this exciting two-year project. The group included art quilters, traditionalists, historians and relative newcomers to this quilting journey. Over the course of the next two years, six sets of vintage blocks were distributed to these brave artists. The block was theirs to play with! They could add to it, cut it up, embellish it, recreate it, improve upon it and more. The only requirement was that the finished quilt measure 24 inches square and that the original block be included in the final project. In all, a total of 117 quilts were created. The exhibit traveled extensively from 2007-2013. Be inspired to create your own quilt block challenge using the tips and guidelines provided.
