    Do you have a favorite vintage quilt pattern that you made way back when and want to make again? Do you still have the pattern? Share your favorite with us.

    In the mid 70's I worked as a para pro in my High School sewing lab while attending college. My mentor introduced me and her students to quilting through Gingham Goose patterns. Sleepy Teddy is my favorite. I made one for my nephew and still have the pattern. I want to introduce my charity quilting friends to Sleepy Teddy. I think he would be loved by any little gal or guy who received him.

    I made about 15 of this pattern in the late 70s and early 80s. I sent them to shelters for babies and to Ronald McDonald houses. Fun to do.

    I guess my favorite old pattern would be the whig rose.

    I have a bunch of those patterns that my mother used for my own kids. There was one with separate horses to tuck into places on the quilt and a train for my son. The train one was his favorite and shows wear! She had all the fabric collected for Sunbonnet Sue so I finished that one and have it tucked away for "future reference". Just might have to get those patterns out again.

    Since I don't know how to post pictures to this site, I'm going to simply refer you to www.ginghamgoosepatterns.com website. My mother pretty much stuck with the suggested fabrics/colors on the patterns and the ones she did were Amy Sue (that one I finished), Chuggy Choo-Choo and Grandpa's Pony Farm. My dad had a red truck like the one on the pony farm quilt so there was significance there for my "little boy". (He's now 30 yrs. old.) I recently did some repairs to the train one and then tucked it away again--with lots of love!
