    Wow. This setting is so contemporary and reminds us that we can use repro fabrics in contemporary setting for just such a look. Still looking at my 70’s calicos but now I want to dig into my 30’s repros. I love buying stash discards at thrift shops…..it gives me such a variety of fabrics without the hefty price. Guess i better finish the quilt I am working on before moving to either.

    Gorgeous! It is such a happy quilt now. Really beautiful. What a visionary you are! Very brave too. The 70’s quilt cutting would have terrified me but you resuscitated that one too!

    Great way of putting it all back together!

      even with all the blocks trimmed to the same size it still takes a while to piece together…the irregularity of the piecing makes the matching points harder to line up….but worth the effort

  8. Such an improvement over the original (which was nice to begin with), I can hardly wait to see what you’ll do with the quilting.

    I have to admit when you first showed the quilt, I didn’t want you to mess with it. I was wrong – it looks amazing now. What vision you have!

      Thanks!…I know that it was pretty as it was but I really bought it because I wanted to try out some new layout ideas…. but I almost left it alone because it was so nice. I’m glad that I decided to go for it

    I agree I was wondering why you would cut it apart- i will not question again-I will wait to see the finished product! You have inspired me to dig out some of my tops and blocks and I am looking at them in new ways! Just because i bought them set a certain way doesn’t mean they nee to stay that way! Inspiring!

    Looks great – like the way you’ve used lots of different fabrics too! =D

    I love how it looks now with your layout. What a great way to bring an old quilt top back to life. I can’t wait to see how you quilt this one.

      I have not decided on a quilting pattern yet….but I think it will be something simple…I usually say that and then end up with something much more complex…but I do intend it to be simple
