Group Name: Dinahs Delight 1830-1850
With each collection I create there is a story to tell. Dinah’s Delight begins with an antique quilt that was really two finished quilts that had been cut up to create a new quilt in the early 1800s. I was fascinated by the construction, wondering if the quilts were cut apart to hide them from the enemy, or if they were the salvaged parts of damaged quilts.
The name comes from Dinah Crisler Carpenter (1762-1836), my fifth-generation removed great grandmother. Born in Culpeper County, Virginia, Dinah married Samuel Carpenter, who fought alongside their fellow Virginians in the Revolutionary War, and eventually had fourteen children.
Dinah’s Dilemma recreates the magic of the antique quilt, while Gentleness reflects the colonial life of a reverend’s wife. I hope this collection of beautiful prints inspires you to tell your story in a quilt.
