Spring Quilt Festival -- Chicago IL (Part 3.5)

Most of the quilts I photograph at this type of show are art quilts, but this one won my heart for two reasons: 1) I'm a total sucker for two color quilts and 2) yellow and white is so crisp and clean and suitable for a quilt show with a spring theme.

"Jacob's Ladder Variation, circa 1910" by Erma Wilder Federman of Plainfield WI, is on loan from the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts. The quilt blocks are hand pieced; the borders were sewn on by machine.

The precise, beautifully done hand quilting was another thing that just draws you in for a closer look.....
