Whether you are ready to piece together a vibrant Lone Star quilt or transport yourself to a Connecticut farm, we just hope that you have fun with our latest Quiltfolk Puzzles.
Quiltfolk Puzzles are made in partnership with The New York Puzzle company. All puzzles are crafted from 100% recycled chipboard that is 20% thicker than standard puzzles. Our linen-style paper reduces glare, and each puzzle is shaken prior to shipment to reduce puzzle dust. Enjoy!
Puzzle 04 | Bright Star in the Nevada Desert
Crimson Rose is more commonly known as “The Fire Goddess” to tens of thousands of people who make the annual pilgrimage to Burning Man, an art-focused cultural event that draws some 75,000 people to Nevada’s uninhabited Black Rock Desert. At Burning Man or in her studio, Crimson surrounds herself with powerful art that she can see and touch. Her Grandmother Mabel’s radiant Lone Star quilt is one such object. Crimson said this special gift stirs beautiful childhood memories of her beloved grandmother; she was thrilled to see it on the cover of Issue 15: Nevada. We hope Mabel Viola Meador’s exceptional Lone Star quilt lights a fire of inspiration in you!
Puzzle 05 | Hanging Around an Open-Air Quilt Show
When the weather is fine, it’s a fine time for an outdoor quilt show. In Connecticut, the Farmington Valley Quilt Guild’s annual “Hang-A-Quilt Day” brings excitement to the community. And banners like you see to the left, made from U.F.O. blocks, help promote the event. Here, Country Cluckers (2012), made by Susan Elliott and designed by Arlene and Melissa of The Quilt Company, hangs proudly on a barn at Flamig Farm in West Simsbury. Susan shared that it took her six years to complete Country Cluckers, and each fabric chicken has its own name.
