A Vintage Finish

I had an ultra-productive nap time yesterday and managed to finish the quilting on my Modern Maples and complete the quilting and binding on this baby.

There really isn't too much more to say about this quilt that I didn't say yesterday. In general, I don't buy a lot of quilting books, mostly because I'm cheap, but also because I like the challenge of figuring out patterns on my own. With that said, I'm pretty happy that I bought Simply Retro. I've already made two quilts out of the book which is more than I can say for most of my other ones.

I also really like this block and I'm already plotting a larger quilt with a white background and maybe some more Denyse Schmidt? These blocks finish at 19.75" so it wouldn't take too long to make a larger quilt.

  7. I'm totally with you about this book. I love everything Camille does. I started making a red white and blue quilt with a smaller version of this block for my son. It's a great classic block and looks great in these colors.

  9. I've been so out of the loop that I didn't realize that she published this book - thanks to your post it is now in my Amazon basket.
    Love what you did with this quilt - the fabrics you picked are perfect - love the back!
