I love your color selections and that you gave us an idea of your complete palette. Those reproduction prints are so smoooooth!

I love your color selections. They are very nice and have a softer look. These are the types of fabrics that I am drawn to. Good job.

Thank you all for the compliments and encouragement. I'm hoping to do my feb blocks this week, but they look a little intimidating! That said, everyone that has posted pictures of their blocks look wonderful!

This is going to be very pretty. The fabrics are definitely reminiscent of 30's quilts. Great job so far and good luck!

I am in love with your fat quarters. Where they part of a bundle? If so, which one. This quilt is just going to be gorgeous when you are done.

I purchased the bundle at a small quilt shop in Missouri, I believe the owner of the shop put them together, and she had it labeled 1930 reproduction prints. I am new to quilting and did not know what a "fat quarter" was, so when I went to the shop she explained that to me, she helped me pick out some additional fabrics as there weren't enough in the pack and she cut additional fat quarters from those fabrics. She was so helpful, I haven't started February blocks, had two projects for gifts that I needed to get finished, then we've had some 60 degree weather in Kansas, so I've been out riding on my scooter for the last 2 days!

Thanks, KerriJean. I think we must have been cut from the same cloth. I love the reproductions of the 30's prints. I am also new to quilting and spend a great deal of time on my scooter. (I have a Vino 125 at the moment.) Good luck with your project. I think it's going to really adorable when you're done.

I have a Vespa 150 that I love! I also have a Burgman 650, but I'm thinking is a little too big for me. my husband wants me to trade them both in for one of the can-am spyders, which I would love to have, but I really don't want to part with my Vespa!

I actually wanted a Vespa 150 but hubby bought me the Vino 125 as a gift so I didn't complain. Last summer, he suggested I trade up to the Spyder too but I bought a Mustang convertible instead. :) I still have my eye on that Vespa though. They have a certain style that can't be duplicated. Have fun on yours!
