Vintage Patches

Another oldie but goodie! Last night I finished up this wonderful quilt called Vintage Patches by Evelyn Sloppy.
Many many years ago a few of us quilters were sitting around a table at Bits and Pieces and decided to have a block swap with this pattern. It was so much fun and alot of wonderful fabrics were used. Some ladies have had their quilts done for a long time and last night I put the last stitch in mine. I will treasure it always!

I love the older patterns with reproduction fabrics, scrappy quilts that look my grandmother could have made them, and blocks that friends make! blessings, marlene

Hi, It's been a long time since I visited your blog and was taken with the new header quilt. What pattern is it? I may have to put it on my to do list.
