Here's a quilt I made for a friend's young son.  I was going for an "instant antique" look, but I did machine-quilt it.  The fabric backing was really cute -- picnic fabric with ants on it.

Thanks! 

I'm actually working on a very similar quilt in red-and-white.  Hand quilting this time.

I totally failed to get the quilting finished by xmas.  Hopefully the four year old boy I'm making it for won't be in therapy for the rest of his life because I missed xmas!

that is so beautiful!  I love the look of it.  I love antique looking quilts and hope to make my first quilt in the next week.  (well, start to make one)  I just can't get over it.  Very very nice! Smiley

So beautiful!  Sometimes the simplest of patterns with subdued colors are the most stunning.  Instant antique is perfect, and it looks wonderful.

Thanks y'all for your nice words!

I think I'm a bit of a split personality quilter. My quilts are either quite subdued, like this one, or really bright.  I credit/blame the Amish for the loud quilts.  If they can use such juicy colors in such amazing ways, I can try that too!

Here's one of the bright ones:
