The second assignment in the EGA Master Craftsman Program in Quilt Making was applique with lattices and border. For colors, an analogous scheme was to be used.
I named this quilt “It’s Tulip Time” and purchased the fabric and completed the quilt while we were living in Iceland in 1989 to 1991. This quilt was also chosen to be exhibited at the National Seminar in the year it was completed.
I did begin the third phase of the program which was a useable quilt other than a bed quilt in complementary colors with a variety of special techniques such as crazy quilting, string quilting, and trapunto. That project, a tea cozy, is still a WIVSP (Work In Very Slow Progress) in my sewing closet. I hope someday soon to pick it back up and finish it, although they no longer have the Master Craftsman Program.
Going back to college after an 18 year “break” intervened in my quilt making, so I was unable to complete the program while they were still offering it.
I think I’m doing it right this time by incorporating the arts into my academic work. I’m nearly through the first two classes, except for the project work, and I’m really happy to have chosen this doctoral program.
