"Really Retro....... not" based on a design called "Really Retro" (when I find the magazine I'll add it into the post.) measures about 12"x15". It was made as a 2008 christmas gift for my oldest daughter. One of her favorite colors is purple so I raided my fat quarter collection to see what I had and also added in a few contrasts.
Why did I give it a slightly different title? Well I used fabrics that were not really retro looking, added an inner navy border and did yoyo's instead of buttons. I also carried the embroidered vine pattern all the way round the border.
I hope you take the time to visit some of the other participants in this fun week of Bloggers Quilt Festival. There's some fabulous quilts out there. Some of them will positively take your breath away :) The link is on my side bar under my welcome.
Glad you visited. Now much as I would love you to stay for a good while and maybe share in some cyberspace hot chocolate and cookies I need to encourage you to move along and enjoy the show, it might take you all week to view the exhibits at the rate "the list" is growing !!!!!!!
*addendum - The original wall hanging that I based my design upon can be found in Quilt Presents #52 Quick Quilts. Designed by Katy Sweigert with the assistance of her daughters. She used 1930's reproduction fabrics. My blog for January 4th 2009 shows a photograph.
