Inside every Quiltfolk Pattern
A vintage quilt and its history
As Quiltfolk travels the country, we find beautiful vintage quilts that should be shared with the world. Each of these vintage quilts has a story. Sometimes we get to meet the maker, but most of the time, these quilts belong to a relative, a collector, or a museum.
A contemporary counterpart
We also bring you a second pattern for a Revival Quilt, inspired by the Source Quilt. An exciting lineup of some of today’s most talented designers have, and will continue to contribute to Quiltfolk Patterns. This month’s Revival Quilt designer is design superstar, Anna Maria Horner.
The moment they meet
Quiltfolk facilitates a meeting between the Revival Quilt designer and the owner or maker of the Source Quilt. We physically bring these people together — and we come with our cameras to capture the moment.

Quiltfolk Patterns 007
So many of our quilts start with family — and in Tennessee, if you’re a quilter, you are family. You’ll see this firsthand when you dive into the seventh Quiltfolk Pattern, where Minnie Lee Deakins (who just celebrated her 75th wedding anniversary) meets and talks quilts with superstar designer (and mother of seven) Anna Maria Horner.
A quilt made by Deakins decades ago provided the inspiration for Horner’s vibrant Oh My Stars quilt. When Horner was about to do her show and tell, she was nervous her new friend wouldn’t like it. She needn’t have worried: Deakins loved it, and we think you will, too.
We’re proud to bring you the latest installment of Quiltfolk Patterns. When you’re with Quiltfolk, you’re family, too.
