Twenty-eight Quilts were exhibited at AQSG Seminar held in Lincoln, Nebraska in October 2012. The 2012 Quilt Study theme was Colonial Revival Quilts from the Early 20th Century. All inspiration quilts are required to be recognizable as quilts from the period regardless of the techniques used to make the original quilt. It was up to each Participant to determine their own construction methods for their projects based upon information available about the original quilt.
