Jackie's Quilt is Finished!

Sew.... Jackie's Quilt?
  Who is Jackie and why is this quilt named after her?  2 years ago my friend Janet received the original "Jackie's Quilt"  pieced top as a gift. Jackie had found it in with some family things and know that Janet and all her quilting friends would appreciate it...Of course, Janet and I fell in love with the original, and needed to figure out the pattern construction and make our own. It seems simple enough, just alot of squares, right...But, no..like a lot of 1930's quilts, the construction may be pretty complex and it actually took 2 seasoned quilters the better part of an afternoon to decipher... 

Sew... my version of the "Jackie" is done in 1930's reproduction fabrics (often referred to as "Aunt Grace" fabric, after a wonderful collection of fabrics made popular by Marcus Fabrics.) 1930's quilts almost always had muslin fabric for the background, and medium green , bubblegum pink, or blue for the accent solid...I choose gray and orange for a more modern look...

More information about Jackie's quilt to come....
