    Don't forget the appique patterns! The child's quilt with animals and the sunbonnet sues are a perfect match for the old tymies too.

    How about a Dresden Plate pattern. As vintage as it gets for 1930s reproductions.

    Another would be Delectable Mountains.

    How about Shoo Fly, Monkey Wrench or Hole in the Barn Door. One of these is the same pattern with different name, I forget which.

    Snake in the Hollow is another one.

    Can you tell that I'm vintage!

    This is an easy one: "Double wedding rings"Dresden Plates" and Sunbonnet Sues !! Have fun!! Just love it when people see these quilts and the patterns are so readily recognized. I just love these. Have made around 6 DWR's, a couple of Dresden Plates and a couple of SS's.

    I love the SBS, the dresden plate or the butterfly quilt. They all work very nicely with vintage or retro material.

    I would vote for the Dresden, Wedding Ring, or Cathedral Windows.

    All of which were placed on my bucket list.
    Dresden is done and gifted, Cathedral is in process, and I am collecting reds for the Wedding ring.

    A Dresden Plate, or a Sunbonnet Sue are both pretty solid choices

    It is really hard to say - my first reaction was Grandmother's Flower Garden and then the Postage Stamp. But more pop into my head - so I will go with my first response for now.

    These are some great ideas. I've made several with feed sacks and muslin...I also have a lot of feed sacks and prints and whites. Probably never get to use them all. I'm trying to finish up pices I have made and need to bat and quilt

    I am making two quilts with 30's repro fabrics. One is a double pinwheel, using Eleanor Burns book

    http://www.amazon.com/Double-Pinwhee...dp/0922705992a

    and because I knew I would have scraps, I decided to do churn dash with the leftovers. I plan on making each block a different fabric.

    This is absolutely one of my favorite's, I have pieced two (english paper piecing method) you should give it a try, very portable too. I also have hand quilted two for a friend and one of my own the other is a UFO.

    That was fun - I never would have thought of looking for inspiration that way. Thanks.
