Story Spotlight Sunday

Sometimes the quiltmaker isn’t the only one who has a story to share about a quilt. At this year’s International Quilt Festival, Susan Stewart shared her quilt “Blue Plate Special”, winner of the Superior Threads Master Award for Thread Artistry. Can you believe almost all of the color on this quilt is machine embroidery?!
After Susan shared her story, her husband Mark did a Go Tell It at the Quilt Show! interview about his experience living with a quilter, traveling to quilt shows, and the quilt world in general.

Thanks so much to Susan and Mark for sharing two sides of the same quilt’s story!

You can watch more quilt stories from the International Quilt Festival on the Quilt Alliance’s Youtube page.
