Georgann Eglinski: Hamilton: The Quilt (top)
Lin Manuel Miranda
as Alexander Hamilton
The central panel copied from a circa 1800 print done
by the Hewson print works in Philadelphia.
Georgann added more butterflies and flowers.
And Georgann has been listening to the music as she sewed on her medallion featuring the reproduction panel from John Hewson. She read the Ron Chernow biography of Hamilton and as far as she's concerned it's 1803.
With one concession to the present.
The Winterthur-Hewson prints designed by Kathy Hall came out in 2011.
I'm still working on my version.
(or maybe the phrase is---mine is still in the waiting for border inspiration box)
Georgann's chintz scrapbag is fairly monumental.
Much of it is from lines that Terry Thompson and
I have done for Moda over the past twenty years.
