Our new series here at EverythingCroton--THE VILLAGE QUILTER!--has proven so popular that we have two quilts for you today. And of course along the way--and when we find them--we'll feature the work of local quilting artisans--search for vintage and antique items--provide tips, interesting links, and more....AND SO...
Click on the photo above (undated but probably sometime in the 90's), to see the "Storm at Sea" quilt created by the now disbanded Croton Pointers. Some facts about the quilt: a minimum of 10 different hues of blue were combined with a contrasting blue on white print, 100% cotton; each individual block was either hand or machine pieces by members of the Croton Pointers, 681 pieces, 117 blocks.
Next up we continue to feature the work of local quilting artisan Sandi R--the quilt to the right is aptly named "Sunrise" and the almost three-dimensional qualities of the center sun motifs are breathtaking--not to mention the colors.
Spectacular. Click on the photo. And stay tuned for more of THE VILLAGE QUILTER next week.
