from the editor

I have a vintage quilt made by my grandmother and great-aunt in 1930. I know this because the year is embroidered on the back. It’s been used by three generations. It’s been washed and hung to dry. Repairs were made haphazardly, and the batting, once tied in place, has migrated. When investigating an open seam, I realized what I thought was ivory muslin is a faded floral print. When I started quilting, I asked Mom for this quilt, planning to fix it. But I’ve hesitated for decades, fearful. Do I repair tears or replace sections? Should I deconstruct, then reconstruct the quilt, or leave it as is? We reached out to antique quilt experts Darlene Zimmerman and Bettina Havig for insights. Both said I’d be fine deconstructing, repairing, and reconstructing the…

tips from readers

it all measures up I use wooden yardsticks and rulers to display my traditional quilts on a gallery wall in my home. I hang quilts with clothespins, tabs, and sleeves, or fold quilts and drape them over a yardstick. Helen Jetterson via e-mail place holders I use antique flat irons to hold fabric in place on my cutting table when I’m rotary-cutting. The old irons also help keep fabric from shifting when I square up a quilt before I stitch on the binding. Joyce Bardeen via e-mail repair and renew Old quilts in good condition are a collector’s dream, but such finds have become scarcer by the year. Many times, though, aged unquilted quilt tops offer blocks that are begging to be rescued. If you use fabric from the same era that a block was made, you…

primitives in progress

Dyeing wool involves soaking the fabric. T he longer it soaks, the more color it absorbs. Likewise, the longer Lisa Bongean immerses herself in quilting, the richer her ideas become. And she has been soaking herself in quilting for more than 20 years, after starting her quilting journey earlier than most, at the age of 29. “I was young enough to have time to take quilting to new levels,” Lisa says. In fact, friends tease her that she was born with a needle in one hand and a piece of hand-dyed wool in the other. Lisa has grabbed every opportunity to push her limits and the limits of the quilting world. She has hand-dyed wool, created patterns and wool kits for wholesale and retail, taught wool appliqué and hand embroidery, designed…
