    Today I met Mary Koval a reproduction fabric designer. She was at the small quilt shop in Bedford with her fabrics and some of her repro quilts and was doing a book signing. She only lives about 15 mins from me. I know how much some of you love the repro's so I thought you might be interested. I bought 4 fq's, one of which is a repro of a 1830 pring and three of which are 1870's. I'll have to post some pics when I can.

    She was explaining to me the technique of designing the repro and how she comes across the original patterned fabrics. It was very interesting. (At least to me. Doug ended up taking Laken back to the car because I was taking so long.)

    She also sells antique quilts and fabric. Here's her website in case you are interested.

    Here they are. There were so many to choose from but for some reason I was being drawn to blues today. I really wanted them all but "someone" was looking over my shoulder.

    Hi there, just bought some of those lovely fabrics of hers for my 1863 quilt I am going to make. They really are nice. Should get them next week so will show them to you.
