Then & Now: 1930s

International Quilt Museum
James Collection
It's the perfect thirties quilt, scraps of multicolored prints
that follow a design rule popular then and now:
"Any color goes with any other color as long as you use a lot of white."

See the whole quilt here with its purple ice-cream-cone border:

My article in the July/August issue of Love of Quilting
contrasts quilting in the 1930s with quilting in 2020.

Then & Now

Influencers by Lissa Alexander & Maggie Honeyman
from Lissa's recent book Sisterhood of Scraps.

Lots of patterns in the magazine for period quilts---a fan & a wedding ring,
and a Drunkard's Path.

Pepper Cory's All Sorts before it was quilted.
Clever border moving pattern out to the edge.

Here are a few quilts that didn't fit in my two pages.

Posey Quilt, may be from a 1934 pattern in Needlecraft magazine.

Sky Rocket from the 1930s, Carmel Reitman's collection

Snowball by Georgann Eglinski, 21st Century

I am enjoying this column each month!

Love that last quilt shown because of the pieced center (anything simple would do for me) and the applique border to finish it off.

Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
