|Vintage Laurel Wreath quilt|
I redrafted the blocks in early 2004 and then plunged in thinking I would make the entire quilt. Holy Cow! After 5 blocks (all the birds), I gave up. I made one bird into a small wall quilt and have since gifted it. (Can't find a picture of that one, sorry to say.) And I turned the other 4 birds into a lovely quilt using garden maze sashing.

I think my little granddaughter would enjoy looking at this one. Her mother (my oldest daughter, Audrey) is also enamored with 1930s fabrics and designs. She has laid claim to many of my vintage remakes and will probably get all of the rest when I pass on to the "giant sewing room in the sky."
Maybe I'll share a few of my other remakes of these series in future posts. While not large, there is a strong contingent of quilters who love these vintage patterns. Are you one of those?
