I want to share this, as an FYI.
If you watched the You Tube video from Schoolhouse presentation at Quilt Market in Houston last Fall, you saw my version of a quilt in the collection at the Folk Art Museum in NYC, it has a John Hewson panel in the center. It was my inspiration to make the quilt. I don’t know that I’ll be publishing my quilt, will have to get permission to use form the Folk Art Museum and I have lots on my plate right now.
Fabric lines are birthed (like that word?), months in advance of arriving in stores, sometimes almost one year. I knew about the John Hewson group with Winterthur Museum, so when working on my ‘Alexandria’ line last summer, I wanted to have some pieces that could be used with the Hewson panel.
‘Alexandria’ ships (I believe) late April or May, I received my 5 yard pieces so I can now show what I had in mind. I hope you have been able to find the John Hewson fabrics either at your favorite local quilt shop or on-line to make your own little piece of history.
