Remember Mission Valley plaids? They were everywhere for a time. I don't know if they are still in business as I haven't seen them for quite some time. This quilt on my church pew rack was made from those and an antique muslin. I saw this in the American Patchwork and Quilting magazine when it was in it's first year or two of publication, and made it pretty much like they did. At the time, I was planning on it being a bed sized quilt, but I hadn't been quilting for long and had a little trouble with all of those points. I decided that a smaller size would suffice!
And, speaking of American Patchwork and Quilting, I just love that magazine. They seem to be the only one still out there that respects traditional quilters. Vicki and I have often bemoaned the fact that there isn't an Antique Quilts magazine. McCalls used to have a quarterly one, but they stopped publication after just a few years. Thank goodness for the wonderful books that are still being printed, especially the state books. And, the internet, and all of you out there who share their wonderful collections with us all!
