MAKING ANTIQUE QUILTS

By Rita Weiss


Recreate beautiful antique quilts from the pioneer days of the 1850s to the wartime 1940s—and preserve the stories they tell about America’s quilting heritage. Twenty antique quilts are pictured in detailed color photos with fascinating information about each of the originals in their era. Complete, photo-filled instructions explain how to make yesterday’s quilts with today’s fabrics, techniques, and materials. If you choose not to recreate the antique quilt, try using the antique block in a modern up-to-date version with the “Give it a Try section.”The projects have been expertly chosen by one of the world’s leading authors, publishers, and lecturers on the history of needlework. Among her selections: “Chimney Sweep Variation”, developed by quilters with only small pieces of fabric available; the “Double Wedding Ring”, a gift quilt from the 1820s; and “Jacob’s Ladder”, another pattern drawn from the farm home scrap basket.
