Here's a bit of my newest work, while in progress, along with the antique inspiration from my collection. It was made for the American Quilt Study Group 2018 Quilt Study, Solid Color Quilts.

And a bit more of the new quilt (top)

Middle row - Amazing Baltimore Album quilt, 2018 AQSG seminar exhibit; my Quilted Joy Too repro, home after traveling for 4 years with AQSG Civil War Quilt Study; detail of the antique inspiration for Quilted Joy.

Bottom row - Potts signature quilt, Winterthur Museum, AQSG 2018 visit;  great medallion quilt, AQSG 2018 exhibit; detail of 1848 signature quilt in my collection from Chicopee, Massachusetts.
