"Celebrating Pieces of the Past"
By Jill Shaulis and Vicki Olsen of Yellow Creek Quilt Designs
Since 1922, Sisters Jill Shaulis and Vicki Olsen have shared their passion for traditional quilts through their quilt shop and pattern business, Yellow Creek Quilt Designs, known for its warm 1800s reproduction prints and wool fabrics. Now they celebrate their mutual love for these classic quilts in this diverse collection of 13 projects, ranging form bed-size quilts to wall hangings to table runners and wool applique table mat. A scrappy medley of paper-pieced hexagons and foundation-pieced Pineapple blocks take center stage in two framed projects. Wile paying homage to the past, Jill and Vicki also like to put their own twist on tradition, whether it's injecting a dash of whimsy into a colorful Courthouse Steps quilt with a bevy of wool blooms or switching out a couple blocks in a Nine-Patch classic with Churn Dash charmers
