Ragtime by Georgann Eglinski, 2009.
Quilted by Lori Kukuk
Here are some pictures of Georgann's strip quilt that
she showed at the Kaw Valley Quilters Guild show in April.
Georgann has made several quilts in this pattern, a good combination of simple patchwork and fancy fabric.
She took her palette from a reproduction print line called Ragtime
that Terry Thompson and I did for Moda in 2005.
Ragtime reproduced some crazy prints from the ragtime era, the 1910s.
People sometimes have trouble believing these "black novelty prints" could be 100 years old.
(Not all reproduction fabrics are brown---see my last post)
These bright on black prints were very fashionable about 1910.
Above is a stereograph photo with a quilt top that was the inspiration for the Ragtime collection.
Vestibule or Morning Star
Susan Stiff at Moda did a digitized version of the old quilt top in the new fabric.
Here's a version I made of the Morning Star I made with the charm pack and some extra yardage.
We did a little package called a Tin Box Sampler that featured a charm pack of small squares and a disk with patterns on it.
Here's an applique design from the Tin Box.
Your quilt shop might even have a few yards of the Ragtime reproduction left, or I bet you can still find Ragtime prints at your favorite online source. Just do a digital search for Ragtime Moda.
