    Here are some pics of a quilt I finished today. It uses a bowtie pattern and 1930s reproduction fabrics. For the backing I used a fabric I found that was a reproduction ticking fabric. The quilt size is 60" x 72", and I did stitch-in-the-ditch quilting on it. My wife made the name label for me on her embroidery machine.

    This quilt will be going into our family room to use for those afternoon naps we manage to get from time to time. :)

    Two of my favorites - '30's reproduction fabric and plain and simple bowtie blocks. Great quilt.

    That's a beautiful quilt, and the pattern is perfect for the reproduction prints. And I love the ticking on back. There was another thread on how to use muslin, which makes me ask - is the white fabric in your quilt muslin?

    The white fabric is actually drapery lining that I got at Wal-Mart. All the other whites at WM were too thin looking, I think they make the drapery fabric a little thicker since it has to be kind of sturdy. It also is a wider width, about 54" I believe. It has a muslin look to it, which I liked.

    I just love the repo fabrics. They lend themselves very well to that pattern. Outstanding job!
