The Best by Yvonne Porcella

This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled The Best made by the late Yvonne Porcella of Arnold, California for the 2014 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, Inspired By.

Materials and processes: Silks, cottons, fused, buttons, machine stitched

Artist’s Statement

I used the Quilt Index search function to find my crazy quilt inspiration. From there I navigated over to alphabet quilts. Documented by the Kentucky Quilt Project Anna Marie Schmidt Steinbock 1876-1900 stitched family names on her crazy quilt scraps. With modern tools I added stitching and words onto my crazy background.
