Do you like 30’s fabrics?

I’m not doing much quilting other than a few seams here and there on the AppleCore but Mom’s been working on her two 30’s quilts that we cut out on my last visit. She told me today that she’s finishing up the binding on the Tumbler quilt but I don’t have a photo of that one yet.

Here’s her version of my Lattice Quilt that I was in the process of assembling before my trip. Instructions are on my site

    I love 30’s fabric!!! Did not at first, but have grown into them. They are feminine. I have 5 great nieces and am making quilts for each when they graduate. (Thank heaven I have a few years)

    I love 30’s fabric. I think it is so delicate. remindes me of the flour sacks we used to get with our flour from the mill. We used them for dish towels. never thought of dresses or quilts till they had dried several loads of dishes. πŸ™‚

    What a lovely pattern — the lattice looks so sweet. I’ve been sewing this week with some 30’s reproduction fabrics, too. It’s a UFO project, 4-inch bowties, with Judie Rothermel “Aunt Grace” fabrics. I love the prints with children and dogs the best. πŸ™‚

    I love this pattern in the 30’s repros. So sweet and fresh looking. Maybe that will be the next stash for me to bust after the homespuns! πŸ™‚

    I’m not a fan of 30s fabrics–at least I didn’t think so. But I keep seeing pretty little quilts like this one and I’m beginning to question myself. When they’re made up, they’re really quite lovely.
