And then came my Vintage Frocks Quilt

Up to this point, none of my commercial quilt patterns had featured 30's reproduction fabric. And yet it is my all time favorite fabric. The colors and the tiny happy novelty prints never fail to cheer me. When I was little and we lived with my grandmother, her dresses were like 1930's fabrics. Heck, they might have been, or even older. But it was the softness of the cotton that was so special and comforting, a feel that is very hard to find these days.

This is what I attempted to capture in my Vintage Frocks quilt.
