Here is still another link to another beautiful contemporary black-background quilt.
I also wanted to share a gorgeous piece of fabric that would make a lovely applique with black background that I found on eBay.
I dug thru my mother-in-laws stash of magazines as soon as I read your email and found that 1990 issue! What is the name of the published book you are referring to that you and Dixie Hayward worked on? Did you include some of the Uzbek designs?
|Now in Gail Bakkom's collection|
Here is a 1920s black background Four Block Tulip Quilt from eBay dealer french72, always a great dealer to work with. Treat yourself and visit his eBay store! Just click on the french72 link above.
Below is another from french72 with a dark indigo background from the 1880s.
And here is a newly made black background applique as seen on eBay:
Another quilt---Sunburst 1885---added for your enjoyment March 2012 from dealer John Sauls whom I met via facebook's "Quilts--Vintage and Antique" List.
So the beat goes on!
