The featured quilt of the week in the August 15, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Dancing Ladies. It was created by Mary Maynard

This quilt, along with approximately 50 other quilts and dolls, was part of the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival sponsored by the Clara Ford Foundation and Hammonds House Museum.  It captivated all who saw it.

Dancing Ladies is based on a painting by Charles Searles. Mary’s interpretation of the painting measures 38 x 34 inches. The dancing ladies in the center block are appliqued by hand, and the quilt is quilted by hand.
 
You can almost hear the music as Mary captures the joy these ladies are experiencing as they dance.
