    I hope this .gif file photo shows up... it's called "Cheese and Crackers" #ATK-135 and while I do not have the pattern by Atkinson, the pattern can be located at: http://www.atkinsondesigns.com/patterns/

    I believe the rectangles are based on a 3" and 6" measurement. (I think this could be altered to any multiple numbers 4x8; 6x12, etc.) Looks so simple and clean!

    I like it because it's a modern take on the 1930's printed fabric material.

    Good luck.

    The thirties prints make great butterfly quilts. Patterns that are available Butterfly by Renee Plains ([email protected], Free to Fly by Sandy Brawner (www.quiltcountry.com }, allpeoplequilt.com design by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins called Butterfly Garden, and butterfly Garden by Cheryl Kerestes printed Fon & Porter Love of quilting July/August 2008. I hope this helps. The other sugestions were also great.

    I made a drunkards path with 30's and cream for background.
    It turned out very nice.

    Connecting Threads is having a sale on books right now, one of the titles is "Quilting those flirty 30's" by Cynthia Tomaszewski. Plenty of patterns to use those fantastic 30's fabrics.

    nothing says "lov" like the beautiful,dainty floral colors of 30s repo fabrics.
    Windmills, Flying Geese, Around the World, NinePatch, possibilities are endless
    Hit "Search" category at the top of this page and type "1930s Reproduction Quilts" - Many,many pictures that should inspire anyone

    Oh, that's beautiful... Also shows how you can make a little bit of feedsacks go a long way. I'm bookmarking it for the future! Thank you for showing it.

    All of the suggestions so far are wonderful -- I have another.

    If you can find an old Ruby Short McKim book, there are a lot of old block patterns in there that would make a great quilt with the 30's. I have made some lovely blocks with the 30's fabrics even though they are not my favorites.

    oops

    Can't help you. 30's are not my thing, I don't even have any of them in my huge stash. I have seen some cute quilts made with them, they're just not my style.

    I think a Sun Bonnet Sue done with the 30's material would be so cute.
