    Here's a site that has free quilt designs for 30s prints: http://www.starflowerfabrics.com/free_patterns_.html

    There's also Sunbonnet Sue and many others.

    Now there you go, making me drool - I surely need to get my BOM done so I can start something new.

    I have to say they are wonderful, I did see a book in Joann's today about the 30's quilts, maybe I should have bought it. You really have talent.

    I'm getting ready to make a Vintage Churn Dash quilt. Google it and you can download the pattern.

    How about "Grandma's Garden"? It is a lot of hand sewing and something that you can pick up and do without worry. It is a beautiful quilt! Good luck!

    Dresden Plate is a good one for 30's fabric.

    Twin Sisters is easy to do with reproduction fabrics.

    I've got two applique quilts (making flower blocks) going using the 30's prints and another one finished. It's a great print for either something you don't want to go bold colors with and it has alot of small prints so it's great for applique.

    I love the '30's quilts and especially like books by Zimmerman.

    Here is the link to the 30's sampler that I did and Charisma quilted. I had so much fun picking out all the different blocks.

    Here is a link to a blog showing up close pictures of a Ode to the 1930's quilt. It gives you an idea of all the different patterns. I am very partial to Sun Bonnet Sue and Sam quilts in 1930. I think I like all except patterns that have very large pieces. Teh smaller scale lends itself well to smaller pieces.

    I vote for Dresden plates. I love those 30's prints in a Dresden Plate quilt.

    Windham Fabrics also has quite a few free patterns for the 30s or that could be used with the 30s fabrics. I have downloaded 6 of them already. Good Luck with your choice. I love the 30s fabrics
