    I've wanted to do a vintage looking quilt and I saw some pretty fabric today with roses and gingham, etc. I did this tonight after a lot of playing with the fabrics but not totally sure about it yet. I think it needs to be simple with classic elements. What do you think? Any suggestions?

    I love this! Do you think you would consider sharing the pattern??? I think I even have some fabric that looks like the border fabric. This is a very romantic and 'feel good' quilt. Absolutely gorgeous.

    WOW! I really like that. It has a lot going on but the blocks are not difficult and there is lots of open space for fancy quilting.
    I say don't change a thing.
    Please post pictures of your progress on this quilt.

    I love your design! And it does feel 'vintage'. Reminds me of bedding my mother used to have when I was little - and that was definitely a long time ago!
