Block of the Month: July 2019

Block of the Month: July 2019

It's time for the new "Block of the Month." This month's guest designer is artist Victoria Findlay Wolfe. In addition to the block of the month, Victoria also has an exhibition in the museum called "Playing with Purpose: A Quilt Retrospective."

In "Playing With Purpose: A Quilt Retrospective" visitors can take a deep look inside the evolution of one of today’s most important modern quilt artists. Always fascinated by color, pattern, and design, Victoria Findlay Wolfe found her life’s true joy in quiltmaking. From a young age, a wandering spirit compelled her to become “an artist.” Today, her diverse and exciting body of work stirs quilters worldwide to dig deeper, take risks, and experiment with fabric.

The inspiration quilt for this block is Red Crosses, by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, quilted by Frank Palmer. "This quilt shows that I started with a 9 patch, and very quickly started changing the pattern. I explore a design until I have something I like, then I figure out how to construct it, and I make it. It is one of my favorite quilts, and taught me a lot about myself and my process as a quilter. Just keep making, your skills get better and better!”
