worldwide quilting day...


Today is "Worldwide Quilting Day" and to celebrate here is a rare and undated quilt that best embodies patchwork today. It is traditional and yet graphically modern. It is a timeless mix of pattern and space. Very few examples of this Bullseye pattern have been documented and they all seem to come from a tiny town in Pennsylvania. I hope whether you identify as a traditional, contemporary and/or modern quilter you find some time today, by hand or by machine, to sew something beautiful...

  3. I've got a half sewn bullseye. I've sewn all the pieces and they're ready to assemble but I'm still working up the nerve to sewn the big circles together. I love the way this quilt has applique around the edges.
