Elegant toiles or dramatic florals were often used as a point of interest in British and American Center Medallion quilts, 1800-1830. Printed Center Panels, originally designed for pillows and chair seat covers, were especially popular in quilts from 1820-40 in America.
I will be doing a hands on Center Medallion Workshop in Bozeman, Aug 18th. You may begin with a toile or a dramatic floral
or a Center Panel of your choosing. We are no longer doing the Quilts on the Lawn show..but we are still having our BIG annual Customer Appreciation Sale Aug 17/18, 2012 and a History of Chintz lecture (Friday night) and the Center Medallion Workshop on Saturday, Aug 18th, 2012.
