Use Modern Fabrics or Reproductions!
A beautiful blue pulls together this lovely vintage quilt made of scrap patches. The soft colors give the quilt a timeless quality that can be recreated by today’s quilters.
Using the quilt as a guide, a pattern has been created that incorporates modern construction methods. It’s a simple quilt to make and will finish fairly quickly.
If blue doesn’t work for you, consider using another accent color. A soft red, pink or yellow will be charming, depending on the patches you choose.
In this vintage version, actual 1930s prints were used. However, the quilt will be wonderful in just about any fabric type and focus color.
Go soft, bold, or somewhere in between. We can even imagine it with a colored background. Dig into your stash and put together your own special version.
The finished quilt, shared by Julie Hendricksen, is 82″ × 75 1⁄4″.
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!
