Like an Antique Quilt

Holly over at Moda Fabrics pieced this darling Lush Uptown quilt. When Hollly sent me this quilt she included a picture of an antique quilt, made from the same pattern, and asked me to machine quilt this one just like the original.
Challenge accepted!
Antique, hand-quilted quilts have way less quilting than I typically do, but I love when the machine quilting compliments the piecing. I'm so glad that Holly had the idea to machine quilt this quilt like the original version. I love what it did for the quilt.

Have a nice day!


  1. Wow. I'd love to see this bound and put through the washing machine....I bet it would look so "antique". Great job!

  2. I love it too and the less is more idea for quilting this one was just perfect.

  3. That is just gorgeous! Sometimes less quilting can bet better:)

  4. Love this quilt. Saw the antique version in a Fall 2005 Country Quilts magazine and kept a copy. Where might I find a pattern for this quilt? Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

  5. Good morning... just got an email from a friend, she's staying with a family member, they found a family quilt of this pattern. Their question to me was, what is the name of this quilt pattern? I've found some similar patterns that have centers minus the 9 patch... Dolly Madison's Work Box and/or Cushion Design.
    Help with the original names or names would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
