I’ve been introduced to a new style of quilt. Well, actually, it is a really old style of quilt – sometimes dating back to the 1850s.
Any guesses? Nope, not hexagons! (Although, I do love this vintage revival!)
Okay, okay…I’ll tell you what’s on my mind: modern & vintage two-color quilts.
As it turned out quilters have been amazed, obsessed and down-right dedicated to this style for centuries! Plus, it is still relevant and popular today.
Below, find a few resources on this simple, classic style:
