Back to the 30's.......

Ah, yes, the good old days. My mother would be one of the first to tell you that it wasn't so great to live through the 30's but the quilting that was done then was surely fine. The fabrics from those 30's quilts and those from the 40's and early 50's are what inspired my love of quilting. I can see those colors and prints as the ladies worked on the quilts at Ladies Aid meetings at church. So, I'll be thinking of them as I play with my stash of 30's fabrics today at retreat and I know I will enjoy every minute of the weekend!!
I wasn't planning to post this weekend but some of you really loved those blue and white fabrics pictured in my last post. It occurred to me that I should send you over to the Moda Bake Shop for a peek at the winning Quilt Minnesota Shop display. There was a contest for best display of projects with the blue and white fabric. Janice of FireflyQuiltShop didn't enter it but we both agreed that this shop really did an awesome job of creating a blue and white winter wonderland. Take a peek...... QuiltMinnesotaShopDisplayWinner!
Hope you are enjoying a great weekend! I know I am.
See you Monday.
