Wednesday Weathervanes.

Weathervane is one of more than 200 Browse by Pattern categories users can select to Cruise & Use the Quilt Index. Here are four of the 22 Weathervane quilts that I browsed.

My favorite (today): this machine pieced and hand quilted pink beauty by Ethel Tew of Lake Odessa, Michigan in 1945. The quilt was documented in 2005 as part of the Michigan Quilt Project.

About quiltalliance

The Quilt Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 whose mission is to document, preserve, and share our International quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation's diverse peoples and their communities. In support of this mission, the Alliance brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors to further the following goals: To promote the understanding of the quilt as an important grassroots art form. To make information about quilts available to a broad public. To educate the public about the importance of documenting quilts and quiltmakers so that their stories will not be lost.
