Lone Star Quilt Study Group invites you to a day of “Summertime Blues”

 How many blues can be packed into one quilt study day?

 #1 - Celebrating the Blues: Africa to America: Explore Africa’s use of indigo and the impact on America dyeing and fabric. Examine indigo textiles and quilts from multiple continents and 4 centuries. Presented by Lori Lee Triplett.

#2 - Examples of Prussian Blue: This session will help refine our eye regarding Prussian Blue printed fabric from the 18th and 19th centuries.  Many examples of Prussian Blue printed fabric will be shown in quilts as well as garments. Presented by Dr. Marian Ann Montgomery.

#3 - New Blues: The end of the 19th century and early 20th century saw the arrival of new synthetic blue dyes and fabrics. We will examine examples of these fabrics in quilts and blocks. Presented by Lisa Erlandson.
