'The' AQSG 2012 Quilt Study

I can not believe how long I have been away.  Time sure flies when life gets busy.

One of the things I have been busy with is the American Quilt Study Group's 2012 Study of Early 20th Century Colonial Revival Quilts.  Twenty-eight wonderful study quilts were exhibited at the AQSG annual seminar which took place in Lincoln, Nebraska in early October 2012.  

The study quilts were inspired by at least one quilt made during the early 19th century.  Every single quilt is truly amazing! As a special treat this time five of the inspiration quilts were included plus poster size photos of inspiration quilts from the collection of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum.
