  • This Summit Eureka is all about log cabin block variations.  Eureka Summit is a mountain pass at an elevation of 3332 ft above sea level in the state of Alaska.  But if you look at this quilt, you can see the log cabin blocks, pineapple blocks, curved log cabin blocks,  flocks of geese blocks, feathered stars and even trails and valleys and junctions.  Amazing piecing and you want to keep your head together when piecing this pattern.  And in all 100% cotton fabrics in colors of teals, blacks and grays.   This is so beautiful.  It is covered on the backing with a nice white cotton.  Hand quilting is lovely and shows the beautiful design with the white stitching on the black border.   No need to go to Alaska to see the Summit Eureka since it could be right in your bedroom!  Magnificent!
  • Cathedral window quilts have a unique and fascinating construction method, unlike any other quilt. Instead of layers of backing and batting and a pieced top, they are traditionally constructed of squares of muslin, folded into several layers and hand sewn together. On top of this base, gracefully curving bias folds are turned and stitched to make "frames" over inserts of colorful fabric "windows". This is an amazingly beautiful dimensional quilt that has been hand stitched. Because of the detail and the folding, it is not suitable for hand quilting. The layers are much to thick for that. And so the backing is also muslin that is part of the folded process. These quilts were made in the early days of quilt making in our country, but it is very unusual to find this pattern well done, hand made, and this beautiful in quilts of todays selections.
