If you are looking for inspiration for 19th-century reproductions check out this book:
The Blue and the Gray: Quilt Patterns using Civil War Fabrics by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene.
Mary and Connie are from Country Threads in Iowa, a great shop and a good source for reproduction fabrics.
Here are a few of their quilts.
On the theme of blue and gray they interpret quilts
right up to the end of the century
when grayed-blues and gray prints were so popular with quilters.
Beautiful patterns, but I am finding my piecing skills are lacking;) I think folk art and scrap quilting seem to be my specialty.
Simply stunning.Love all about them,designs,fabrics.Thanks for sharing.
Why do we have to work, I could easily fill miy days making quilts like those you showed from the book!
I bought this about a month ago and want to make every quilt! They are all so beautiful and inspiring.
What a great visit and you are all looking so happy ...we sure do miss seeing you as often though
