Finally finished a quilt!

It is April 9.  It is snowing.  Go figure.  At long last, I finished something.  I made a  reproduction of an antique doll/crib quilt from my collection.  The original quilt dates to about 1870; it has faded over time.  I recreated it with the colors I thought were originally used.

Do you prefer doing reproductions with fabrics that look new or look "aged"?

  1. It looks wonderful Ann! What fun to see the new one right next to the original.

  2. I'm amazed at how well the newer fabrics match up with the originals, even to the sashings. You did a great job on the 'reproduction'! ---"Love"

  4. What a great quilt. I don't age my fabric or quilts that I reproduce.

  5. Fantastic job. I'm sure it was tricky getting the sashing just right.
