It's just gorgeous Rachel! Who could NOT like this classic? My quilt style is not defined yet - I like everything.

Nancy said...

this is classic meets modern... I love it!

Oh, lovely. And the fabric I am trying to find online for a semi-reasonable price. Now that I see your quilt, I am more determined than ever to buy some of it. :) FYI, I made your pinwheel sampler while I was off on disability this summer (or at least all the blocks are done). I need to take pictures and add to your group of them.

I really do love the classic quilts. Much more defined and organized for my little head. Your quilt is gorgeous. I've been saving scraps "for-eva" and this would be such an amazing way to use them up :-)

It's fabulous!!

zarina said...

Thank god for your quilter else we will not see the quilt. Its beautiful and you are right. Traditional quilting blocks will never go out in style - am planning to quilt a double quartet quilt later this week.

Anna said...

Sooo beautiful! This quilt has been on my list after seeing your tutorial. My mom is a Post Master and I think this would make such a wonderful gift for her. :)
Thanks for the inspiration!!

sonia said...

It's beautiful indeed! I love classic designs, much more than modern ones. The fabric selection is Perfect too!

Sandy said...

I like the modern look and feel to quilts lately, but I will always love the classics!

amylouwho said...

Why hello! Remember me?? I love this quilt. I love the simplicity of the design and I love the colors. I think my favorite quilts are modern fabrics in classic designs. I have a couple more modern quilts, but the simple designs still make me the happiest.

Pieces to Love said...

That came out great!

euphoria said...

Libby said...

Love Bears All Things said...

Yes I still love these types of quilts, especially after they've been washed a couple of times. But I hate cutting and sewing those tiny squares.

I love MY postage stamp quilt with the swirly quilting, and I love yours too with the bubbles! A friend has asked for a postage stamp quilt just like mine only with a different fabric line. I think this classic is a keeper!

Helen said...

Ohh!! So... Very Nice.

Quilting Yai Yai said...

Yes, I do still love traditional quilts, especially after seeing a beauty like this. Wonderful job. Love the fabrics you used.
Hugs, Deb

Connie said...

Looks beautiful! All that work piecing the small squares and you forgot to post it! Thanks goodness your quilter reminded you.

Tsoniki said...

I love the quilting on it! And yep, that binding is perfect. I'm just now sewing my strips together into blocks. So I'm behind but still working on it! :)

Thimbleanna said...

It's beautiful Rachael! I love those fabrics -- I'll bet I have enough left over from my laundry basket to make that quilt {swoon}! I'll always be a classic quilt girl -- I'm only a modern fan if it's a classic pattern that's been modernized!

Kathleen said...

I love this quilt...the colors are beautiful..I am going to have to do this after my DWR quilt that I am working on..

Jennifer O. said...

It is a super sweet quilt and the fabrics make it. Traditional is always good. Modern allows more freedom to throw something together. Truthfully I like mixing them together. Plus throwing in some appilque is even a bonus for me.

badlandsquilts said...

I just love this quilt... I think some of the old classics are the new modern.

mascanlon said...

I love this quilt Rachel. I have all the strips sets sewn for mine using white and Central park, I need to get it done, I imagine it will looks as classic as this one! And I think modern and classic play very well together...sometimes the labels get in the way.

Heather said...

Oh I love it! It inspires me to get back to mine!

eatmoresmores said...

classic patchwork squares will always be my favorite. I LOVE THIS QUILT!

taliana said...

I love love love the classics. I like some modern, but the classics are so timeless. ;)

rseme said...

LOVE classic quilt like this....would love to do one. Just so intimidating...all that sewing straight lines and stuff! lol Great job its beautiful!

Brooke said...

YES....classic never goes out of style.

And the new family pet? Dying to know. Do tell. :-)

charlotte said...

I love this quilt!! I like the classics as well as the modern ones. This one is just gorgeous! Its one of my favorite lines too.

Becky said...

it's amazing! I love it! The quilting is gorgeous. I'm still in love with mine too, thank you so much for such a great qal!

Jennifer said...

yes, i still love classic quilts. i do challenge the notion that everything is becoming more modern, though.

Karen said...

LOVE your quilt! Wish I had had the time to join in on this QAL with you. I love the look of classic and modern and this quilt does it perfectly!

Christina Gilman said...

There's room for both, but I tend to lean more classic, I think. Especially for patterns/designs. Modern fabric in the right place can be awesome, though.

Still haven't finished my postage stamp quilt, either...

Lucy said...

Amazing quilt and beautifully quilted! I like both modern and traditional but I think I lean towards the classic :)

suemac said...

I guess I am more on the traditional side although I do love some of the modern fabrics. I am not always sure what I want to do with some of them though.

pinsandneedles said...

I love the new modern fabrics and classic patterns. Although I do love modern quilts too!

queenopearls said...

I love the fabric that you used in this postage stamp quilt!! Very nice. You have inspired me to get to work on mine finally-I just might have enough pieces by now to finish it!!

Sandi1100 said...

Love your postage stamp quilt. I've been wanting to make one for a long time now. The Sullivan ruler will come in handy for working on it. Enjoyed your blog.

jmday said...

Love the quilt! Who would play me? uhhh... no idea. Jennifer Aniston?

Karen said...

Love, love, love this quilt!

Dawn said...

Can see myself reading a book on a rainy afternoon wrapped in this wonderful quilt. :)

Jenn said...

I do still love the classic quilts. Even if it was just made yesterday, it's like paying homage to Grandma.

CaroleM said...

How do you get your seams to match up so perfect?! It is so lovely!!

Maria Wallin said...

It's GORGEOUS! Thank you for sharing and thanks again for the quilt along, I had such a blast!

Classic quilts are never out of fashion! They always have a place. =)

Heather D. said...

The quilt is gorgeous. My favorite part is the quilting. As someone who has so far been too chicken to try free motion, I am amazed by anyone who can do it so beautifully!

lemony lucy said...

It's very pretty. The random bits of color combined with the precision of the piecing is quite a treat for the eye.

jgp60 said...

Hi, I just started looking at ideas for postage stamp quilts and found this post - your quilt is lovely. I like the way the coloured squares are separated with white. Thanks for sharing!
