This full-color description of the creation of 22 quilts gives contemporary quilters fresh ideas for injecting their works with energy from repurposed antique textiles, abandoned blocks, and vintage fragments. For each quilt’s starting inspiration, a fragment of unfinished vintage quilting was incorporated into a modern quilt aesthetic. The newly-designed “past-combined-with-present” quilt tops were then shipped to one of 22 contemporary quilt artists, each among today’s best longarm quilters. The new, innovative quilts serve as a bridge between the vintage past and the modern present. Plus, helpful sections on documentation and on working with vintage fabrics assist readers with combining past and present in their own quilts.
