Do you love reproduction quilts and fabric? Then you'll love this free project taken from True Blue Quilts by Annette Plog, which traces the history of blue fabric throughout the nineteenth century, with plenty of quilt designs along the way.
Finished quilt: 68 ̋ × 79 ̋ • Finished block: 4 ̋ × 4 ̋
This quilt is my reproduction of a wonderful antique quilt dated 1830. I used Prussian blues and browns in florals, stripes, ombrés, and different-sized prints. Although the quilt is assembled in diagonal rows, the alternate blocks form strong vertical lines at the center and then surround and frame the quilt.
