The Quilt Show posted the news that renowned quiltmaker Roberta Horton passed away on February 4. Their tribute is here with a link to a TQS episode featuring Roberta and her twin sister Mary Mashuta. [It's a 57-minute show, so allow yourself some time.]
I met Roberta and Mary in person in 2001. Here's the tale:
(Note: QFALA = Quilters' Forum of ALA. Now we are the ALA Biblioquilters.)
I have two of Roberta's books -- in fact, I have managed to acquire two copies of these two. There is a definite appeal to the array of fabrics used in her quilts and those of her students and colleagues. Scrappy but without jarring contrasts. Nothing trendy, just comfortable. That's a style I like!
. . . And maybe I will cut into those woven plaids from so long ago . . .
