Thank you for waiting...Episode #6 is now posted

This was a fun episode to research as I knew almost nothing about the Marseilles style of Quilting.  It began with searching on Infoweb in America's Historical Newspapers from 1690-1876 and led me to Marseilles, France.

Please check out the International Quilt Study Center and Museum for the Marseilles:White Corded Quilting exhibit going on now through May 22, 2011.  http://www.quiltstudy.org/exhibitions/online_exhibitions/marseilles.html

See the gorgeous detail even though the entire garment/quilt is white?

Here is a photo of the "monster" quilt for my son.  Seriously, it's in a ball on the bed right. Sigh.

  1. Love the Marseilles quilting. Not something I can picture myself doing, but it is gorgeous. Someday I hope to do a wholecloth quilt, but I'm not so sure that I would do the trapunto.

  2. So funny you went to the UNL website for information. Definitely spent 3 years in school there, and took an art class with one of the quilt professors :) (well, technically he was a textile professor, but his medium was quilting). The quilt center is ah-mazing!
