This is my one and only vintage quilt, a 1930's-40's Dresden plate from Illinois USA bought at the UK Festival of Quilts in 2008. I love it. The quilting is fine and the fabrics are a source for making a retro quilt of my own one day, the colours being bolder than the ones seen on so called reproductions though this is slowly changing lately. The world outside my bedroom window is burgeoning with fresh oak leaves, apple and pear blossom and the last remnants of daffodils so the quilt reflects this, replacing the Millennium one that has been my bed since the New Year.
