We feel really honored that Handi Quilter is allowing us to display these quilts and hope that our customers and visitors will be as inspired by them as we are.
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) April 05, 2016
AccuQuilt's new exhibit, Handi Quilter Vintage Made Modern, features a collection of vintage quilt tops that were originally purchased at auctions and then finished by Handi Quilter national educators.
Using modern methods and techniques, the educators finished these quilts in a style that the original quilt top makers never would have imagined. The quilts were all machine quilted on longarm machines and some used computerized quilting in addition to free-motion.
"This is an extraordinary exhibit of quilts that combine traditional patterns and today’s machine quilting techniques. We feel really honored that Handi Quilter is allowing us to display these quilts and hope that our customers and visitors will be as inspired by them as we are," said AccuQuilt President Greg Gaggini.
Many educators embraced concepts such as asymmetry and interior borders to add an interesting touch to the quilts. With their vision and use of modern techniques, these original vintage quilt tops were elevated to a new level.
You can visit the AccuQuilt Gallery Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (by appointment) to see the Handi Quilter Vintage Made Modern exhibit, which runs through April 30, 2016. You can also view the work on the AccuQuilt Gallery page.
