Trunk Show - January 17th - Annette Plog

Trunk Show

Annette Plog

Annette has been quilting since she learned to piece her first quilt, a Lone Star Quilt, in 1987. Being a lover of antique quilts, she was invited to help start a block exchange group, The 19th Century Patchwork Divas, in 1997. The purpose of the group was to reproduce antique quilts using the reproduction fabrics available at the time.

Annette learned to date the antique fabrics in the old quilts and find a reproduction fabric that most closely represented the antique textile. This exercise helped educate Annette and reinforced her love of old quilts and fabrics.

Education through classes, reading and learning from the antique dealers was vital for Annette to add to her fabric history knowledge. Annette has learned so much since she has been involved with the group, but the learning never ends. With each block exchange, there is more to learn whether it is finding the perfect reproduction blue for an 1870s quilt or perfecting a Y seam.

Annette loves sewing, photography, gardening, running, antiquing at Round Top, and watching the grandkiddos. Annette and her husband Jim, of 40 years, live in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas. They have two children, Lauren and David, three grandchildren Lucy, Joshua and Riley, and one dog, a border collie mix named Jake.
