- The majority of responses favored a book over individual patterns-great to know this, I wasn't sure.
- Many suggested that using antique fabric for the quilts would be fine, but also making some of the quilts with reproduction fabrics would be a good idea. My thought here is that sometimes my antique fabric stash limits what quilt I might reproduce, for example, a bright Prussian blue is quite rare to find and probably too rare to use--that might be just the right opportunity to make the quilt in reproduction fabrics.
- Many mentioned that they would like information on the history of the antique quilts/fabric-definitely I would include this!
- Including patterns for other than just quilts (e.g.pincushion/ornaments)was suggested-great idea
