More About Old-Fashioned Applique Quilt Designs by Susan Johnston
 
 
 
Overview

By the end of the 19th century, the homemade quilt had achieved the status of bona fide art form. The most prized examples were done in the applique style: colored pieces of fabric were sewn onto a white muslin background in intricate patterns or patchwork. Then, the entire piece was stitched together with batting and backing. The result was a "show" quilt, prized for its beauty and unusual design.
This volume features over 40 splendid examples of turn-of-the-century applique quilt designs -- a unique resource and an inspiration for designers, artists, illustrators, and needleworkers. Many patterns have robust histories dating back to colonial times. Others are more recent variations or embellishments of time-honored themes.
Choose from a wealth of traditional motifs: pineapples, oak leaves, baskets, cardinals, wreaths, roses, as well as such perennially popular patterns as "Old Town Pump" and "Priscilla Alden." Graphic artists and craftspeople will find this book a valuable reference while colorists will enjoy adding rich hues to a treasury of favorite patterns.
