    I am looking for a pattern for this quilt. I love it so much. I know that it would be a real challenge to make.

    or

    Another option is to it with a woven technique.
    Check out Anna Faustino's books Simply Stunning Woven Quilts.

    Yes, that is an Andi Perejda design. She is in CA....can't remember her website, but you can Google her. She gave that workshop at our guild a couple of years ago. She's great!!

    OK, here's the link. http://www.andiperejda.com/about.htm

    The thing is, she doesn't sell the patterns. She gives the workshops for $$$.

    Huh.
    I don't know who Andi Perejda is but THAT quilt is over 100 years old and is known as the Vortex quilt. I believe the maker is unknown.

    It was prominently displayed during the Red & White quilt show in NYC back in March, and is always included on the best ever quilt lists.
    The maker had no access to rotary cutters or any of the notions we have today. It was hand pieced from templates. Maybe she had a compass and a protractor. Maybe.


    Here's Andi's copy/reproduction of the original:

    But all credit goes to the unknown maker.

    That's what I was referencing...the quilt that Andi made from the original design. Andi figured out all the geometics and had rulers made to make this design. It's a complicated design...that center circle is a killer!!

    I just saw this quilt in one of my books but no pattern. I don't know if there is a pattern available. Someone with EQ skills could probably make one. Isn't it gorgeous. The book is titled America's Glorious Quilts, Edited by Dennis Duke and Deborah Harding. The book is a compilation of museum quilts and all I can say about it is WOW, what a book. Following is the info I have on this beauty.

    Pieced and appliquied, c. 1910
    Made in NJ
    In the collection of America Hurrah Antiques, NYC

    I have to add that all the previous replys were not there when I saw your topic and started typing so now this is just more info! And MTS Is right on her info. This quilt was shown in 1968 at the Great American Quilt Festival and Contest in NYC.

    You have great taste in quilts!
    peace :D
