    My 1930's Quilt

    This is my version of a quilt from the book "Quilting Those Flirty 30's". The applique was done on my "modern" machine, but the piecing and construction was done either on my 1936 FW or my 1929 Singer 101 (which died as I finished the last seam!). My problem now is how to quilt it???? Suggestions?Click image for larger version.

    I would do hand quilting, Feathers around the borders, and quilting around the blocks and flowers with cross hatching after outlining them.

    Thanks, everyone! And tulip. I like your quilting suggestions. But hand quilting is out for me (boo hoo) because of arthritis in my thumbs. But I can do what you suggested by machine. I hope...

    I think this suggestion would work nicely. Lovely quilt and those 1930's are charming fabrics.

    I absolutely love it. 30's fabrics are my favorites. I have been eyeing that book for some time, you make me want to go out and buy it. Thanks for the inspiration.

    LOVE this quilt! Your choice of fabrics and colors are perfect for this pattern.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I hand quilt my 30's quilts. I like to keep the quilting in the same time era as teh fabric. They would have done it by hand then.
