This past Christmas, I received a lovely gift from my mother. She won at auction, a few weeks before, a beautiful hand-made, hand-tied quilt created entirely from fabrics of the 1920s through the 1940s.

I thought it would be fun to take some of my favorite fabric swatches from the quilt and try to recreate them on Spoonflower. It takes time, but here are a few I've been working on...
