“Antique Nine Patch Quilt Collection” at National Quilt Museum, Paducah, Kentucky, through May 19, 2015

March 29, 2015


Young Man’s Fancy c. 1900

The National Quilt Museum’s curator, Judy Schwender, sought an exemplary collection of traditional nine patch quilts. The Antique Nine Patch quilt collection is an excellent complement to the modern twist New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Nine Patch, which is at The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. Each antique quilt sets apart as a unique identifier of the various ways a nine patch quilt is pieced and quilted.

Quilt Binding: Flange Binding by Machine

McCall’s Quilting has this video of making quilt binding with a flange – all by machine: http://www.mccallsquilting.com/mccallsquilting/articles/Quilt_Binding___Flanged_Binding_by_Machine

Sherri Bain Driver demonstrates how to create and apply an all-machine-sewn flanged binding. Add a touch of extra color to your quilt binding plus save time with this  machine-sewn technique.

I will be using this technique in my next quilt.  I love it!
