I've owned my quilt shop since 1990, specializing in antique reproduction fabrics. Made my first quilt in 1976 which greatly reduced my sewing of clothing! Would like to find more time to SEW.......maybe when I retire? Am married to a farmer, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren who are the light of my life!!!

Collections Comfort from Moda
More new reproduction fabric! This one is Collections Comfort the 8th in a series of fabric lines based on antique quilts in the collection of Mark Dunn, owner of Moda Fabrics....this from an 1861 quilt from MA. Did a wonderful job on the border fabric in photo #1! Fabric is printed so that four 10" borders may be cut from one length! I have recently seen an antique quilt in one of my many books with that large floral border, but I can't remember which book! Don't you just love to look through books of old quilts? I could spend way more time than I do if I didn't have Life tugging at me all the time! Now I May have another fabric match here, but I won't know for sure until I go to New England Quilt Museum Oct 15 for our final gallery walk of the Maine Quilt Heritage show. The fabric on bolt #3 down from the top in photo 2 seems very similar to the backing of my c.1825 Sawtooth Star! Can't wait to check it out and will let you know if my memory has served me well.......or not!
