Around the Block: Creating Quilts from Blocks from Traditional to Contemporary

From traditional blocks to modern blocks, from repeated blocks to one-of-a-kind blocks, from blocks you know to those you’ve never seen — quilters past and present (and likely future) love blocks. This trunk show includes more than 20 quilts from a range of quilting genres, including ones I’ve designed and ones designed by others and all constructed with blocks. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to join me in becoming a “blockhead” — newly defined as a quilter entranced by the infinite world of quilt blocks. I hope you’ll come away from this presentation proud to be a chip off the old block of our quilting foremothers and our quilting mentors and peers. Plan to join me on this colorful trip around the block.
