Today’s Fabrics Will be Just as Stunning!
This beautiful antique quilt dates from 1893 and includes embroidered initials in the center, presumably of the quilt’s maker. A variety of novelty prints of the era are included in the light patches.
What caught our eye is the striking use of color. The red and tan (actually grayed green) accented with white seems just as modern as if the quilt were made today.
You can easily replicate this quilt for you collection. Whether or not you fussy cut novelty prints is up to you. Focus on the color theme and choose whatever fabrics you prefer.
The quilt will be lovely in other colors as well. Choose three complementary colors including a dark (in this case red), medium (green) and light.
The finished quilt is 81˝ x 81˝, although can easily adjust the size by adding or deleting blocks.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
