There are lots of vintage things and themes I love but I’ve never felt that I really have the style or know how to pull off vintage properly. It’s a bit of an art to make vintage actually look cool, rather than have it look like you just have a bunch of old, dated stuff hanging around.
My style is pretty contemporary. I’m not on trend and I’m not vintage cool. As much as I often wish I could be in either camp.
I do what works for me right now, what appeals to me in the moment.
But one thing that I had been wanting to do, that was outside of my usual zone, was to create a quilt that had a more vintage feel.
I wanted to make a quilt that was a little more timeless, had a more vintage, old world, grandma’s attic kind of feel.
It felt important to create a quilt that more closely reflected the original feel and style of olden day quilting.
When I recently visited a Quilt Fair I came across the fabrics designed by Lynette Anderson and I knew I’d found the start of my project.
