BBQ Membership Meeting

May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dating Quilts
by Joyce Shoemaker, a representative of the Quilt Heritage Museum and an AQS Textile Appraiser

This presentation will cover an array of aspects which speak to many quilt eras. We will discuss clues to dating fabrics including fabric colors, blocks, styles, popular trends, and edge finishes, to name a few. Viewers will see a number of Quilt Heritage Museum collection quilts representing different quilt time periods. Attendees are invited to bring a quilt of their own to get answers as to its circa date.

Joyce has been a quilter for nearly three decades. In 2007, she travelled to Paducah, KY, to take the exams, and became an American Quilters’ Society Certified Textile Appraiser. Before that, she presented quilting workshops on a variety of techniques in five Western states. Her personal quilts are heavily influenced by the array of nature and wildlife she sees while growing alfalfa on her farm in eastern Idaho.
