Nate's Trip to Jamestown and Back

So I took the pattern for the Jamestown quilt and made it my own. The original quilt used the fabric from Jo Morton's Jamestown line, which I wanted to recreate in batiks. I picked out fabrics in the red, blue and green color familys, trying the mirror the colors from the original quilt. I also wanted lots of variation texture and color, so I used around 50 different fabrics, almost all of which have some pattern. I think the quilt turned out beautifully.

This quilt will be part of the New Year's quilt show at Glad Creations. If you go to the show, keep an eye out for Annemarie's matching quilt made out of 30's reproduction fabric.
