Here is the Antique Maine Medallion owned by my friend Wendy. In 1994 I copied it using what was available for what looked like "olde" fabrics! Little did I know then what wonderful reproductions were in store for the future! The original quilt is very light and likely contains a wool batting.Closeups of some of the gorgeous fabrics.....I took lots more photos but do not know if there is a limit on the number of photos one can post at a time!
These red/black "Garibaldis" were from 1880-90's/
That plaid looks like those still produced today!
This is the alternating plain block along the outside edge.
Isn't this Paisley gorgeous?I wonder if the light fabric might not be earlier in the 19th century?
Now we start with my copy! I enjoyed making this quilt...even the Math!Thanks to Judie Rothermel for producing old-looking fabrics beginning in the 1980's! I've seen the original of the shirting with the bicycles.....very good copy!
Thanks to Roberta Horton for producing the old-looking stripes, plaids and tickings! Still love those fabrics and am hoarding.....eerrrr....collecting them!
This bright one may have been Pilgrim/Roy............
The Roberta Horton beige stripe on the left is the closest I could come to mating the color of the alternating blocks on the outside edge of the original.
I recognize the blue on the left as being part of Jinny Beyer's "1492" line and the blue on the right is by Elly SienkiewiczThese fabrics looked "olde" to me at the time so into the quilt they went!
Will always love this pink from Judie Rothermel and the alternate fabric may have been from the Pilgrim/Roy line by P&B
Used a vibrant red on the backing of my quilt too!
