Lancaster Diamond Workshop with Anne Holte Fri. April 25th & Sat April 26th at Ladyfingers Sewing Studio
Ann will provide full-size block drawings so you can begin to create your own version of this spectacular quilt. We will explore basic patchwork elements, Seminole piecing, appliqué, miniatures, and some of the mysterious “oddball” blocks found in this quilt.
History: Two teenage girls, working side-by-side in the 1860s, produced two quilts that feature a unique diamond design. They were learning to quilt and teaching each other the skills needed.
You will see how this sampler records their progression from beginners to accomplished quilters. You will learn about the basic design of the blocks as well as the techniques that were their quilting lessons.
