Modern Pattern, Vintage style

Perhaps I was inspired by Valentine's Day, but I pulled out the pinks to make another Rock Candy table topper.

I thought it would be fun to make a version of this modern quilt in Civil War repros.  My previous version  was done in batiks:

I  can't decide whether to go light or dark on the border for the pink/brown version.  In any case, I don't have the half yard of fabric that it calls for.  Field trip!

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. I like them both - but if I had to choose it would probably be the first one. I think I just love pink and brown. :) blessings, marlene

  2. What a great pattern! I like the brighter one only because I'm thinking spring! They're both beautiful!

  3. To answer your question...have you considered both? Alternating? Too busy? Maybe burgundy? I saw a quilt with a kona red background...stunning! I love both of these, but currently adore pink/brown. Could you use an orange-ish? Can't wait to see! good luck.
