Gotta love the internet

I received an email from Jana in WA today with a clue about the vintage quilt pattern name. Her clue led me to the website of Ruby Short McKim, a artist and quilt designer from the 1920's and 30's. And Jana was right, I did have the quilt upside down. LOL... Here it is right side up.The pattern is called Oriental Poppy and Ruby's descendants have made reprints of this pattern available along with others. How cool is that?! Thanks again Jana!

What a pretty quilt! I love vintage tops! Are you going to leave it as is or quilt it?

Even though I don't do much applique I love those old applique patterns and have bought several books.

Nice job on the quilt with fullness. I had some in the last one I did too and it's nice when a pantograph magically eases a lot of it in.
