When I started to design Vintage Memories, I knew I wanted to use traditional blocks set on point, to give the quilt an old-fashioned look. I love traditional blocks best, and I wanted to create something that would be well-loved by all! I was still waiting for images of the new lines of fabric from Moda when I started to design the quilt.
When I got the images from Lissa at Moda, I knew that the Martinique fabric by 3 Sisters would make the quilt look fresh because of the color choices they used, but would also give it the old-fashioned look that I was looking to infuse in the quilt. I loved how the fabric line had 3 primarily neutral colors (coral, taupe/brown and cream), with a bit of the aqua blue and a touch of the pink and red as accents really making the quilt pop!
It really is the perfect quilt for celebrating spring, that point where cold, misty mornings give way to buds and blooms! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did designing it!
