''OF FRUITS AND FLOWERS"
The Lost Album Blocks of Pauline Bryant
'Remembering The Details That Made Baltimore Album Quilts Great'
An Evening Lecture with Cindy Oravecz
Pauline Bryant looked into the green buds of Foxglove drooping with color in her garden and saw loops of silk ribbon and cotton fabric rolled to make a flower on a Baltimore Album Quilt. She was born at the turn of the 20th century but embraced a Victorian style of living and sewing. Upon her death, the Baltimore Album quilts she had been working on for the last 20 years disappeared. I invite you to see and hear the story of these remarkable blocks and how they made their way to me. In her work, you will see inventiveness, advanced embroidery, lavish ink inscriptions, sophisticated use of ombre fabric, dimension, complex appliques, romanticism and her great joy of creative sewing. By looking at one needlewoman’s passion for sewing, we can see what makes Baltimore Album Quilts great.
