Episode 2413 Description and Preview
Many quilters are inspired by vintage quilts. Marianne set out to re-create a 1940’s Victory Quilt design using modern methods of cutting and piecing. You will also be shown how the Fons & Porter Triangle Trimmer can aid in the correct placement of triangle squares and how to cut setting triangles from simple strips.
Featured Quilt: Anchors Aweigh
Do you enjoy old-fashioned quilts or antique quilts? If you’re a fan of traditional quilting, you do! Marianne Fons certainly is and old fashioned quilts are what inspired Anchors Aweigh. She’s happy to use modern methods for this quilt, making it easier to assemble, but just as beautiful as quilts of yore.
Anchors Aweigh was designed by Marianne Fons and Jean Nolte. The quilt was made by Marianne Fons and quilted by LuAnn Downs. It is featured in the Love of Quilting September/October 2014 issue.
