A beautiful combination of more rustic prints is simply wonderful in this lovely quilt. We love the colors and fabric styles chosen by the designer.

Brighter, more modern prints will be striking in this quilt, as will 1930s reproduction prints and Civil War era primitive fabrics. Choose a collection of fat quarters you love and go from there.

Let’s talk more about this pattern and how it can be more impressive in detail, of course we can’t put here what the author of this pattern wanted, but I can certainly say what I think and think.

Well let’s start talking about the geometric fabrics. These cuts in the shape of diamonds and squares or if you prefer slanted squares.

The technique is very simple to learn and can be done in two ways: sewn by hand or in the machine. At first, when Patchwork appeared in human history about 3500 years ago with the Egyptians, the patches were all joined by hand.

It was only after the industrial revolution and with the invention of the sewing machine, in the middle of 1850, that the patchwork gained a new form of production. Even the Americans and the English were responsible for improving the technique and leaving it the way we know it today.

But no matter how it is done, the final result is always enchanting. And that’s what’s cool about patchwork: to be a relaxed craftsmanship, without rules of combination and that can be used to create a multitude of things.

Nowadays, the most common thing is to see quilts made in patchwork or this Free Medallion Quilt Pattern, which are also called quilting, because of the acrylic blanket quilting that accompanies the piece. But there are also options of dishcloths, bath towels, clothes, bags, cushion covers, seat and chair covers, all made in patchwork.

Basically, the patchwork is composed of three layers of fabric, being the first called the top, where the flaps are, the second is the filling, usually of acrylic blanket and finally the third layer that is the lining, made by a whole fabric and more full-bodied.

“Seeing the collection Sarah’s Story by Betsy Chutchian reminded me the stories my grandmother would tell me of her daily visits to her grand parents farm on her long walks home from school each day in rural Pennsylvania. Of course, Great-Great Grandmother had a fancy parlor, which the children were not permitted to enter.  On the back of fancy velvet sofa was a beautiful hand pieced quilt. 

Because their were 8 children in the family (6 boys and 2 girls) Great-Great Grandmother and Great Grandmother would make quilts of old clothes for the beds.  It was of course Pennsylvania Dutch Country with a strong Amish influence.

My grandmother’s family had not yet arrived in the United States during the time period this collection reflects.  My grand mother’s family immigrated from Ireland during the Civil War, which is how the family gained their citizenship.  The male members of the family were immediately enlisted in the Union Army.

I find it amusing that I grew up with these stories long before Hollywood glamorized this practice in various movies.
