    Even though I haven't quilted since high school (LONG ago), and haven't sewn in 25 years prior to starting quilting, I had been sewing since I was in second grade. My first quilt was a "wonky 9 patch", this one is Sunny Days by Darlene Zimmerman, only I made the finished blocks 9" instead of her 6" to show off the repro fabric better. I did a post of this when I started, thought you may want to see the end product. My SIL did the FMQ, she did an amazing job.

    This is a very pretty quilt. I need to learn how to "enlarge" blocks -- haven't mastered that technique yet. Maybe somebody here can tell me how to do that!

    I want to make a retro quilt too. None in my stash tho, so will have to wait awhile.

    Oh this is wonderful! I am currently enthralled with the 30's fabrics. Have a look at dashton4 on the board she makes wonderful quilts and pillows from 30's fabrics - amazing. She has also written several pattern books.

    I think this is a great quilt!!! I love the fabric! Nice job on the quilting, too! I like your idea about enlarging the blocks to see the fabric better!

    It's weird, can't see either poat... Anyway, here is my third quilt, which I put on a separate post. It has mistakes where the second one didn't. Tried to hurry and have it done before summer was over, and concentrated on the points not getting cut off. I posted this on this thread to see if a reply would make it so I could see anything I posted, but it didn't help.

    When I just posted, I could see p2, and your reply, but if I go to page one, nothing. Can't see the pinwheel (third quilt) post at all. I've never had that issue on here before. Anyway, glad ya'll can see this and I'll check out all of yours!
