Last month I was able to visit many wonderful quilt shops around the U.S. and bought lots of reproduction fabrics. Maybe I should even say I bought LOTS and LOTS of reproduction fabrics. Hey, no time to sew but plenty of time to stock up. Fat Quarters Quilt Shop in Vista, California had a good selection in stock of Judie Rothermel's Quaker Quilts collection. Alas, I don't think I bought enough of the background and I cannot remember where I bought it and which Jo Morton shirtings line it came from. I've had the quilt below in mind for some time and I took advantage of the opportunity to buy enough reproduction reds that I could even finally bear to use some. Oh, and I visited Common Threads Quilting in Waxahachie where I bought the book pictured above. They had several patterns they reproduced from some wonderful antique red and green quilts.
Don't you just love the variety of red prints (plus a sprinkling of different backgrounds) in this old quilt?
