She made this...from that


I shared the antique quilt below at a local quilt study group in October and blogged about it here. Jean Fries from Bellwether Dry Goods was inspired by it and made her own version which is photographed above. I really like it and she was kind enough to let me share it with you. The quilt is available for purchase on the Bellwether website and you should visit the Bellwether Facebook page to see more of their awesome work.

love this setting for nine patches. I like both versions. I'm sure she'll have no problem selling it.

Her quilt has a lighter look but still has lots of pinks. I think it is wonderful how antique quilts can inspire a modern day quilter.

Both the original and the "inspired" quilt are beauties!
I like how she made her version unique.

What a great quilt! Love pink and green together- instant aging.
