    I am in love with the metal quilts. I was fascinated by the story of the quilts and the underground railroad!!

  9. Oh, these are lovely. I think I’d have to keep it for myself.

  10. I facebooked about this, of course!

  11. Would love to win one of these for our sheep barn on our farm in Maine! Wonderful interview, really impressed by the work of the Steel Quilt Co., and their use of textile history in their art. It is important to teach and keep these stories alive, and they do it so beautifully. Kudos to all, and thank you for sharing.

  12. Nancy Bemboom says:

    This inspires me to try those ideas I never seem to have time to do. While I don’t quilt, I love the colors and geometry. Would be wonderful art for my home.

  14. Kelly Sasman says:

    What I LOVE about the metal quilts is not only just how incredible they look, but also that they tell the story of the underground railroad. I have read and attended an exhibit about it. Such an important art of history.

Also , as the granddaughter of a farmer who is now living in the country, I appreciate the use of rustic materials. Thanks so much for introducing me to these outstanding craftspeople.

Winning a Steel Quilt square would be so awesome in my “quilting area.” I really like the log cabin square is the one I really like (love). I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
