Medallion Reproduction quilt by Georgann Eglinski
I'm packing for a week long retreat with 9 friends. We are bringing some chintz panels to make a group medallion that we may auction off for AQSG in the fall.
I'm bringing this panel from Collections for a Cause.
And a few older repros that I MAY find this week in those plastic tubs labeled chintz.
Wish I had this new Barnsley from Petra Prins. Maybe someone else will.
Now you may wonder what the numbers are. Merikay Waldvogel has assigned a number to the chintz panels we see in antique American and British quilts.
She and I have started a blog just to post her information about panels. See it here:
We won't have the new Di Ford repro of #10 to work with,
because it won't even be in shops till August.
Cynthia Collier's medallion with #28, the Jane Austen panel
Never bought #28; should have.
Another Dutch panel---no number (yet)
Reproduced for the Quilt Museum in York UK
Of course, I shouldn't be allowed to go near a chintz panel. Here are six SIX unfinished chintz quilt tops that I photographed a few months ago. I decided I would start with the smallest and I have finished that one.
I didn't have enough panels so I made one
memorializing Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee a few years ago. (6 years ago)
Wendy Reed's little repro with panel #5.
One we collaborated on a few years ago at a retreat.
The center doesn't have a number (yet) since it's an Indian palampore.
