Guild Presentation: Lynda Crouch of Tennessee Quilts

"Judy Niemeyer Trunk Show"

Linda is the co-owner of Tennessee Quilts, located in historic Jonesborough, Tennessee’s oldest town. Linda has been quilting since 1988 when she took a quilting class and became addicted. Her addiction resulted in the purchase of an existing quilt shop in Jonesborough in 2000. The shop is currently home to over 8,000 bolts of fabric and is a Judy Niemeyer Certified Shop. It was also named as a featured shop in the American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine in 2011. Linda has produced a number of award-winning quilts. Two of the quilts she quilted for hire have been juried into and exhibited at the American Quilter’s Society show in Paducah, Kentucky. In a former life, Linda was a teacher and a lawyer. She is happiest now that she can spend all of her time with quilting and related projects.

Friday PM Class

 Tennessee Waltz Quilt

The Tn Waltz is a traditional pattern that gives the illusion of curved piecing. It combines a star block with a snowball block. As your eyes travel from one block to another, the pattern appears to dance across the quilt. 

The Tennessee Waltz is another name for a traditional quilt pattern called “54-40 or Fight”. The pattern was named after a campaign slogan used by James Polk. It stands f 54 degrees, 40 minutes north latitude. This was Oregon Territory border that was subject to dispute with Great Britain. The proponents of this slogan wanted the US to have this territory go to war.
