Bettina Havig and her Hewson quilt top
Bettina's original design frames the reproduction panel.
Here's a shot of Merikay Waldvogel's on the left and mine in January. Merikay noticed that most of the original quilts have more details in the center panel so she appliqued birds in the corners. Mine was inspired by Zebiah Hewson's.
Quilt by Zebiah Hewson, Philadelphia Museum of Art
This is where I am now, working on the third border, some of which is digitally added here.
And in looking at the original I see I have to applique more birds and butterflies in there too.
You can probably still find the kits for this one by
Jean Ann Wright for Andover.
