The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, often features a top on a frame in the lobby.
Volunteers give hand quilting demonstrations to visitors.
Here's Virginia, a member of the Yo-Yo Club of Paducah, showing how to do it.
I recognize some of my Lately Arrived From London prints in this
Volunteers also donate tops to be quilted there. The finished
quilts then go to raise funds for the museum.
Bettina Havig has recently shipped off a top to be put in the frame.
She's alternated two nine-patch blocks on point.
And framed it with a strip border that makes the blocks
seem to float above the border.
I recognize several prints from my Moda Morris Workshop line several years ago.
She's contrasted the oranges and olives
with a plain white neutral.
The Morris Workshop is out of print.
Those past William Morris lines are hard to find. The
fabric goes fast, so I am taking this opportunity to tell you
to buy my latest Morris collection:
Best of Morris from Moda.
A subtle marketing suggestion!!!!
Pre-cuts are in shops now. Yardage is scheduled to
be shipped in mid-February.
