Twenty-seven members of the Milwaukee Art Quilters worked together to divide their award-winning “The Jennings Homestead” design, create their blocks, and put it back together. The result? This intricately beautiful quilt, which won Third Place in the Innova-sponsored Group Challenge at AQS QuiltWeek® – Paducah, Kentucky, in April, 2013. The quilt went on to win Best Group Quilt at Road to California 2013.
The quilt was created as a thank you gift for the owner of the warehouse which, for the last ten years, has served as their rent-free meeting place. Members of the Milwaukee Art Quilters speak with Andrea Ray in this video that tells you more about their group quiltmaking process.
