    Do you have a favorite vintage quilt pattern that you made way back when and want to make again? Do you still have the pattern? Share your favorite with us.

    In the mid 70's I worked as a para pro in my High School sewing lab while attending college. My mentor introduced me and her students to quilting through Gingham Goose patterns. Sleepy Teddy is my favorite. I made one for my nephew and still have the pattern. I want to introduce my charity quilting friends to Sleepy Teddy. I think he would be loved by any little gal or guy who received him.

    I made about 15 of this pattern in the late 70s and early 80s. I sent them to shelters for babies and to Ronald McDonald houses. Fun to do.

    I guess my favorite old pattern would be the whig rose.

    I have a bunch of those patterns that my mother used for my own kids. There was one with separate horses to tuck into places on the quilt and a train for my son. The train one was his favorite and shows wear! She had all the fabric collected for Sunbonnet Sue so I finished that one and have it tucked away for "future reference". Just might have to get those patterns out again.

    Since I don't know how to post pictures to this site, I'm going to simply refer you to www.ginghamgoosepatterns.com website. My mother pretty much stuck with the suggested fabrics/colors on the patterns and the ones she did were Amy Sue (that one I finished), Chuggy Choo-Choo and Grandpa's Pony Farm. My dad had a red truck like the one on the pony farm quilt so there was significance there for my "little boy". (He's now 30 yrs. old.) I recently did some repairs to the train one and then tucked it away again--with lots of love!

    I just retrieved the gingham goose patterns that I have among my stash. Granted, the ones I have date back many years and I have no idea what the more recently printed patterns recommend but I'm going to suggest using a product such as Steam a Seam to put some "glue" behind those appliques. They are fairly large and if the edges of the applique fray with use, such as children give those designs, they are going to be in bad repair such as the train one that I had to fix. Take advantage of ways to anchor the designs so they stand the use that children will give them.
