Quilt Study 2018
The Biennial Quilt Studies have become 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 about what was learned through the process of creating their own quilt.
The 2018 Quilt Study theme was 200 Years of Solid Color Quilts: Cultural and Regional Distinctions, 1800-2000. For the purpose of this quilt study the inspiration quilt did need not be American and did not have to be an antique as the study covered 200 years of quilting. It was up to each participant to determine their own construction methods for their projects based upon information available about the original quilt. The Study Quilts were limited to a 200” perimeter.
