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 the talented Amy Struckmeyer.
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 005
If you’re a quilter, you’ve got ties to New England — no matter where you’re from. After all, much of our quiltmaking tradition comes from this scenic, historic region. For our fifth Quiltfolk Patterns release, we traveled to Massachusetts to call on early-American quilt scholar Lynne Bassett, who gave us the story about a special quilt.
Speaking of special: The incomparable Liza Prior Lucy — Kaffe Fassett’s go-to designer for almost 40 years — is our featured designer for Pattern 005. We couldn’t imagine what Lucy would do with Bassett’s family quilt, but we knew it would be amazing. Lucy did not disappoint.
So grab your cup of tea — and your rotary cutter — and come with us to New England.
