If you’re looking for unique quilts and fascinating quilters, Tennessee is the place. For the fourth Quiltfolk Patterns release, our crew hopped on a plane to Nashville to pay a visit to the one and only Bets Ramsey. Quilter, scholar, and loving great-grandmother, Ramsey had a Source Quilt called Rising Sun that we fell in love with.
We figured someone else would fall in love with it too — and we were right. Revival Quilt designer Giuseppe Ribaudo took inspiration from the Ramsey family quilt and created Moon Rising, a marvelous (and a little mysterious) quilt that pays homage to the original but breaks new ground. Come with us to Nashville to meet Bets, Giuseppe, and two quilts that connect the generations.
