I was looking through some of my antique quilt blocks today because I am thinking about making a new quilt based on one of them. Here are a few (click to enlarge) .
The one that strikes me today is this one
I Imagine that the dull tan fabric was once a different color before 100+ years of fading.
I looked up the block in Barbara Brackman”s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns and found that it is #1496b Named Lansing….now I like it even better!
I couldn’t find a picture of a finished quilt so I made up a sample photo
I like the look of that!…and I have a good pile of reproduction double pinks and poison greens and cheddars …This might be the perfect place to use them
