Quilt Study 2012

The biennial Quilt Studies are a popular part of the American Quilt Study Group’s activities. Participation is a voluntary undertaking by AQSG members. Responding to a selected theme, a quilt is created which is copied from, or inspired by, an existing antique quilt. Each participant is asked to provide an image of their inspiration and write a statement describing why they chose the inspiration quilt; the techniques used to construct their own quilt; and what was learned in the process.

The 2012 Quilt Study theme was Colonial Revival Quilts from the Early 20th Century. All inspiration quilts were required to be recognizable as quilts from the period regardless of the techniques used to make the original quilt. It was up to each participant to determine their own construction methods for their projects based upon information available about the original quilt.
