In the 1970s, a new generation of American quiltmakers was born, one with a free-spirited approach to construction and a spectacular sense of color. There were no rotary cutters or computerized sewing machines, and polyester double knit was among the most widely available modern materials. Today, the quilts of the 1970s quilts are becoming increasingly collectible. Bill Volckening will share highlights of his collection of 1970s quilts, in a web seminar full of hot color, history and happy quilts.

In this web seminar you will learn:

  • How to recognize a 1970s quilt.
  • Popular fabrics and methods of construction.
  • The influence of modern materials such as polyester double knit on quiltmaking.
  • Cultural factors contributing to the popularity of quiltmaking.
  • Perspective about 1970s quilts and the quilt marketplace.
  • How quilts have evolved.
  • The relevance of 1970s quilts today.

Bill says: "When I first saw 1970s quilts, I was completely infatuated with the strong colors, but there was something more. The quilts were remarkable cultural artifacts representing a great quiltmaking revival in America. I think you will discover the quilts of the 1970s to be relevant as they are vibrant."
