Sometimes you find a quilt you want to make exactly like the pattern, using the same colors the original quilt's designer used, the exact layout, and even the same fabric collections. Other times, there's something about a quilt's pattern that you love, but you'd like to make it your own.
Quilt Remix, which began airing online at QNNtv.com this January, focuses on the many different ways you can make a quilt truly your own. Vastly different versions, created with the vintage pattern as the starting point, morph into quilts that are quite unexpected and wonderful. Kelly Bowser, host of the series, was presented with a dozen different vintage or traditional quilts. Her goal: remake each in her own modern aesthetic. See a collection of the quilts – the traditional or vintage, along with her new versions on display in the Expo Gallery. Sometimes she retained much of the original block or setting; other times she took it far off the pattern, creating quilts that are truly, uniquely, her own.
