from fabric stack to quilt top



Here's my basic receipe . . . take one fabric stack from lovestoryfabrics by Maureen Cracknell,
add a plaid, a few quirky vintage prints, and a couple of blending solids. Mix everything together well using the 'star crossed' quilt pattern from Sharon Holland's book 'utilitystylequiltsforeverydayliving'  . . . et voilĂ  . . . one quilt top with a soft vintage look.














Have a good week,
Linda

  4. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.
    That is a great block, I've just pieced a block very
    similar to it for the traditional sampler I'm working on.
    You have a good way with color.

  12. Some of those prints from Maureen Cracknell are just dreamy aren't they? I love the block design too. Do you own that book by Sharon Holland? Just wondering what it is like?
