As I've worked at copying an old quilt the most difficult fabric to find was suitable stripes and plaids.
This block had 3 plaids and one stripe. I was only able to find 3 plaids so they all had to go into my reproduction whether I liked them or not.
I consider myself lucky to have found the stripe fabric that I did - it was from a collection of Christmas fabrics.
I love this tan stripe with the leaves. Of course, I couldn't find anything like it. Wouldn't that be a great fabric in lots of different colorways?
My modern block is boring in comparison.
Here's a Monkey Wrench block with different white and brown stripes. I looked through the prior posts and didn't find it. So, maybe I missed it. I hope I didn't miss others.
I couldn't find any pictures of it and it's overcast and raining so all you get is a blurry photo. I had to use the Christmas stripes again and have a passable brown stripe. Still, I think the modern block isn't as exciting as the vintage one.
