This is my very first honest-to-goodness quilt where I did everything correctly! The nine-patch squares were made using real and reproduction feedsack fabrics from the 20's, 30's, 40's and today that I got at thrift shops and at my quilting store. It is fresh off the sewing machine, so hopefully it will become less stiff with time. I made it to match this quilt that my mom gave me for christmas and is an antique:

thank you so much for all the kind words! this quilt was definitly a learning experience- I really need a walking foot and next time, I will hand stitch the binding. love the repros though! they're almost as good as the real thing.
