From eBay to “Oh, My!” – Antique Quilts Get a Whole New Life from McCall's Quilting
Debuting in the very latest issue of Heritage Quilts Made Modern, these lovely antique quilt tops were purchased on e-Bay and then turned over to the loving arms of Handi Quilter Educators to be quilted. Using today’s latest technology and their own contemporary interpretations, these master long-arm quilters channeled the creativity of the original quilters as they stitched new life into these lovely vintage quilts.

Metaphors on Aging from SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates)
Aging affects everyone in many different ways. Through the use of a wide variety of visual metaphors, these works show the impact of aging on our lives: three generations sharing a cup of tea, a decaying leaf, an empty chair. These poignant images draw you in and challenge assumptions about aging.



Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge from NYC MOD Quilt Guild
With guild member Victoria Findlay-Wolfe’s recent obsession with a more modern take on the traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern permeating the air, guild members took up the challenge and created stunning interpretations of the DWR – some single rings, many doubles, all interesting and wonderful artistic inspiration.


Treasures from the Trunk
Nancy Mahoney
As a child I slept under a wonderful Double Wedding Ring quilt that was made during the 1930s by my great-grandmother, Catherine Ellen Fowler Clark Carty. So I fell in love with 30s quilts at an early age. For many years I've enjoyed collecting vintage quilts. I love the thrill of finding an old quilt and, over the years, collecting quilts from the 30s has become a passion. I adore the cheerful fabrics and appreciate the creative talents of quilters from this difficult period. Vintage quilts have been the single greatest influence on my quilting journey; not only have they influenced my own quilts and colors. Quilts from the 1930s have been the inspiration for eight 30s reproduction fabric collections. I also collect patterns and newspaper clippings from the 30s which have been the resource and inspiration for three of my books, as well as many quilts.
