I have a soft spot in my heart for reproduction fabrics and patterns. I love old quilts and enjoy reading about them and have a few old tops that I treasure.
I could not resist Collette’s block of the month at Quilter’s Common for this pattern. I got a bit behind on finishing it but here is the top ready for quilting. I was inspired by Collette to add the striped border. I love how the Green jumps out now. The picture before the outer blocks and border were added highlights the reds. My blue/green border gives it another look altogether.
Piecing this top was a bit of a challenge and I feel that I have really improved my skills quite a bit. So, I am glad I spent the time to fuss with all of these blocks.
