Description
Between 1925 and 1945, women from Emporia, Kansas, together created some of the era's most memorable appliqué quilts, earning both international renown and permanent places in museum collections for their blend of innovation and tradition. Quilt historian Barbara Brackman and quilting teacher Karla Menaugh here offer the fascinating history of the women and times that produced the Emporia style, along with seven spectacular quilt projects with flowers, swags, and festoons based on those original designs. Brackman and Menaugh show how to mix and match Emporia block motifs, and provide full-sized templates for your own appliqués.

"The projects celebrate the unique work of a group of Kansas quilt makers whose quilts are world-renowned for their design and workmanship. The women included Rose Good Kretsinger and Charlotte Whitehill. Kresinger's appliqued 'New Rose Tree' inspired Brackman's center block of the nine-block 'Emporia Rose Sampler;' Whitehill's 'Calendula' shares commonalities with the 'Spice Pink' block used in the sampler and a table runner. Brackman and Menaugh discuss the stunning original quilts and their makers in the first half of the book; the second half explores the modernized projects—bedcovers, pillows and pincushions—plus so-called 'bonus' ideas, as well as advice for the advanced quilter. Although the book is more history than how-to, the techniques include the rudiments of appliqueing, piecing, sawtooth, and mitering corners. The modern interpretations are especially appealing for their golden yellows and warm reds."—Publishers Weekly
