Saturday at the Quilt Museum - Lady of the Lake, Part 1

So, as usual, a quilt caught my eye and I was off on a search for more of the same pattern!  The clear blue is so striking in this first one.

Lady of the Lake
New York
71" x 88"

Isn't this just beautiful?  Check out the detail shot below.  The quilter used plain, unpieced blocks for the centers.  It makes it look more like an Ocean Waves pattern that way.

This was found at one time on the Stella Rubin Antiques website.

Lady of the Lake
72" x 80"

A treasure of old fabrics!  Wouldn't you love to see this one in person?

Found on eBay

Lady of the Lake
98 1/2" 98 1/2"

This is a big one!  I love the soft colors of it and how the quilter set the blocks.

Lady of the Lake in Cheddar
Possibly Pennsylvania
76" x 96"

Cheddar with mahogany/ox blood red in a striking display!

Lady of the Lake
Contemporary work

This one struck me because of the sashing between the blocks.  It gives it a mosaic feel somehow.

Apparently Homestead Hearth had a pattern for this at one time.

Next week we'll keep going on Lady of the Lake Quilts!

  1. I love Lady of the Lake. When I first met my best friend, that's what she was working on, and when she was dying, I wanted it because of our history, but her DIL wanted it, too, so I gave in gracefully and took a different quilt. I've put together two of them, and it's such a pretty block, no matter what colors or how you do it. Thanks for sharing these great examples!

    1. Susan, you're welcome. And I'm sorry for the loss of your best friend.

  2. All those triangles! I remember that Ocean Wave block too.:-) I like the third one ~ I'm partial to green. They are amazing!
