    Here are some pics of a quilt I finished today. It uses a bowtie pattern and 1930s reproduction fabrics. For the backing I used a fabric I found that was a reproduction ticking fabric. The quilt size is 60" x 72", and I did stitch-in-the-ditch quilting on it. My wife made the name label for me on her embroidery machine.

    This quilt will be going into our family room to use for those afternoon naps we manage to get from time to time. :)

    Two of my favorites - '30's reproduction fabric and plain and simple bowtie blocks. Great quilt.

    The first picture looks like a vintage quilt from grandma. It's certainly a happy quilt. Great job!
