Something Old, Something New

 Something old, something new, something fun for me to do! I found myself clicking the "purchase" button on these delicious Brigitte Gilbin French reproduction fabrics during a bit of cabin fever last month. 

I decided on a medallion style quilt, but I wanted it to look fresh and whimsical - sort of 1823 meets 2023. The background fabric is called "Alsace" by Skipping Stones Studio for Clothworks. Here she is so far.

I only bought fat quarters, so I think maybe just one more border. Time will tell. Hope you are working on something fun today.


  1. Such a delightful and beautiful quilt. Love all those circles. I'm waiting to hear what fun food name you'll give this one. I can't wait to see this in person one day.

  2. I love that line of fabric. The variable inner border is perfect to bring all the fabrics together.

  3. Love those fabrics. I've been tempted too.

  4. Oh, wow, Wendy! I think you NAILED it on the whimsical feel. Love the mashup of the two centuries. It definitely has a fresh feel with vintage fabrics. Love it!
