New Quilts from Old Fabrics

I bought a cool old suitcase at a yard sale many years ago. Inside were scraps leftover from someone's quilt projects, sweet bits of calicos, little prints, and kitchey novelties patterns.

When I first learned to draw in Illustrator and then to create repeats, I was eager to reproduce these vintage designs. Since then, I have reinterpreted hundreds of these obscure, nameless patterns from the 30's through the 70's.

What joy.
