    I saw this antique quilt and just fell in love with it and had to make one. Finished this one last September. I drafted mine by looking at the pic; no pattern. Wanted warm country colors. Will show a pic far away so you can see the graphics and how the light fabrics dance through it. I have handquilted freehand stippling on the right side; have the left side to do now. Hope you enjoy it like I do!

    Thank you, Margie!! I copied it pretty well but didn't want all the red they had in it but it looks close huh? I even turned their picture upright for you to compare! They did a great job (40's I think)! My blocks are all even and lined up but sure don't look like it. The wind was blowing today - must be the wind, hahaha!

    Your antique reproduction looks great. You followed the picture very closely & I can see it, the way the white winds upward. Great work. Happy Quilting.

    Thank you Sheila Elaine! Had a hard time even finding out the name of the pattern for a long time let alone any info on it. So tried to get the contrast correct also with the light fabrics. It was fun. Thank you!!!

    :D :D
