Baltimore Garden Quilt - Book Signing at Bear's Paw


WHEN:  Saturday, April 14, 2012 - 10AM to NOON

WHERE:  Bear's Paw Fabrics
8812 Orchard Tree Lane
Towson, MD 21286 (410-321-6730)

WHO:  Barbara M. Burnham and
 Marty Vint, Dogwood Quilting

Marty Vint will be joining us! She is the brave lady who quilted my quilt "M.E.C. Remembered" in the book Baltimore Garden Quilt. She started with my hand drawings of quilting designs that I traced from the antique quilt, and she stitched all those designs with her Gammill longarm, plus quilted around all the applique pieces - quite a project! She did such a beautiful job! The quilt won a 2nd place ribbon at the 2010 American Quilter's Society show in Paducah for Bed Quilts - Longarm/ Midarm Machine Quilted.

We will sign books, do some demos, and bring some quilts to display, including the original 1848 antique quilt that inspired the book.  I do not bring this quilt out to visit often, because it is very fragile - each visit results in more fabric loss.

The reproduction quilt, "M.E.C. Remembered" is currently in Paducah, to be exhibited on Author's Row at the AQS 2012 quilt show April, 25-28, 2012. However, you might want to take this opportunity to see the antique quilt, up close and personal.

Hope you will join us! More information at Pawprints:

More book signings coming soon ...
