The link below contains some photos of a charity quilt I just completed. I call it "Transportation". It is the first quilt my husband has wanted to keep in my 2+ years of "serious" quilting.
The folks I've shown it to have all asked the same question. "Where did you get that fabric?"
I always give the same answer. It was given to me to make something with by my guild. I have no idea who manufactured it or when it was sold.
BUT I LOVE IT AND WANT MORE! Of course, I am going to ask about manufacturer when I turn the quilt in. I have another top of smaller blocks complete and enough of the larger blocks to make one more quilt...I might have to drag that out a bit so I can enjoy the blocks longer!
Please take a look at the focus blocks, which feature various forms of transportation, all of which look 'vintage'. Based on the cars and trucks, I'm guessing 'vintage' is around the 1940's. But I don't think the fabric is that old. If you know who made it, when and/or have some, I would really love to buy it.
