Supplies: BSS, 12 – 10 inch squares of muslin, note taking materials.


Lisa Erlandson is a compulsive quilt collector whose habit has led to several quilt-related specialties.  She is an AQS Certified Appraiser of Quilted Textiles, lecturer, quilt restorer, quilt show judge, teacher and quilt historian.  She also owns Le Retreat House in Gainesville, Texas.  It remains filled to capacity each weekend. Lisa has an extensive collection of antique quilts that she shares during many of her lectures. She has spoken internationally and teaches and lectures at venues from small local guilds to national quilt shows.  Lisa served on the Board of Directors and as newsletter editor for the Professional Association of Appraisers of Quilted Textiles and is currently serving as President of the American Quilt Study Group. 

Lisa learned to sew as a child but considered it punishment (and maybe it was). She re-discovered sewing in the mid 1980s as a drama teacher and made her first quilt in 1991.

She wrote the pattern instructions for quilts made by AQSG members and published in the 2013 book “Revival! A Study of Early 20th Century Colonial Revival Quilts” published by Kansas City Star Books. She served as the designer for the latest AQSG book: “In War Time: A Study of Civil War Era Quilts 1850 – 1865.”
