FROM SUBLIME TO RIDICULOUS:  VARIATIONS ON A THEME

Trunk show illustrating exciting ways to venture from the mundane.  Teddy will share a traditional quilt followed by one in the same pattern that's a little out of the box or unexpected and yet another one that blows the box completely out of the water!  Many of the non-traditonal examples are Teddy's own national award winning artworks.  Audience participation is always welcomed!  

 

SOUTHERN STITCHES AND NORTHERN NEEDLES

Teddy's 26 year career in quilt history and her prized location in Florida, working with quilts from all over the United States, has placed her in a unique position to understand the differences evidenced in quilts of the North and South. This trunk show will feature quilts that illustrate cultural and regional variations, with explanation of why they exist.  Quilts, history, trivia, what more can you ask for?  Enlightenment!  Get it here!

STRINGY THINGIES

String quilts are the ultimate in "waste not, want not" efforts.  The smallest leftover bits and pieces from dressmaking or quilting  - strings - can be transformed into glorious new quilts.  Trunk show of vintage quilts and tops from Teddy's collection, showcasing everything from utilitarian to spectacular.  

 

 

A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES

This trunk show begins with an English Center Medallion quilt from 1790-1800 and transitions through the decades to the present day.  See examples of typical quilt styles from each decade and learn when, why, and how they changed in appearance.  LOTS of historical trivia and fascinating facts in this program!
