Antique Quilt Makeover- PA Inspiration

I'm busy quilting on my latest quilt reproduction/rescue/makeover, etc. for a national challenge. I was  heavily influenced by the PA German aesthetic and inspired by about half dozen antique quilts in my collection. Above is the completed top (40" x 40").  You can read about all the antique inspirations, block by block on my other blog, http://www.starleyquilts.blogspot.com - see the January and February listings.

Here are the block inspirations:

And here are some of the PA color inspirations
and this gem
Again, see 2012 entries on http://starleyquilts.blogspot.com/  to learn about the above inspirational antique quilts.


  1. It is a beauty, Sandra.
    I love seeing the quilts that inspired your work, too.
    I'm assuming the quilts in the challenge will be judged. If so, I hope you let us know how this one does.

  2. This is really beautiful. I love the fabrics and the gorgeous applique!

  3. A lovely quilt.

    Thank you for showing your inspiration.

    I'm off to look at your other blog. :)

  4. Another beautiful creation - well done!

  5. Nothing like antiques for inspiration - love it! I have listed your blog for a "Liebster" award:). Check out my latest post for the details. Thanks for your blog!
