    "Somewhere in Time" ~ "I See Stripes" ~ "Primitive"

    Thought I'd post pictures of three different quilts I just finished. The first one, "Somewhere in Time" was my first quilt made from 30's fabric ~ not my favorite fabric, but this pattern just spoke to me. The second one, "I See Stripes" was a pattern I found in a quilting book and the last one is a primitive I'm donating to a BBQ auction next weekend. The 30's quilt was difficult to take a picture of because it's so big. Hope you enjoy looking cuz' I certainly enjoyed making them.

    Your quilts are all lovely! Did you use a commercial pattern for the "Somewhere In Time" quilt? That pattern is talking to me and I would love to make one like it. I have a friend who adores 30's fabric -not my favorite either- but she would so enjoy a quilt made with them.
    Thanks,

    Beautiful! I would love to make the 30's. Is it a pattern you can share? Or can it be purchased?

    Great quilts! I love them all and the variegated striped binding us perfect against the white on the second quilt.

    These are all so different, but all so nice! I can't help but to love the primitive. Although the others are equally as lovely.

    All 3 are wonderful. 30's are not my cup of tea either but that quilt is lovely! The pattern is so versatile it would look good in any combo from batiks to thimbleberries type fabs. Love the primitive too and the stripes is just too fun for words.

    All 3 are delightful, bbut especially the 30's one, and I don't usually enjoy 30's quilts.

    All are beautiful but especially like the Repo 30's one. That is some of my favorite fabric. Also really like the 3rd quilt-love samplers. Thank you for sharing all 3 fantastic quilts.

    I like them all but the first one is gorgeous! That pattern is perfect for 30's prints. Thanks for sharing.
