Simply Retro - Dapper
Here's the Dapper quilt from Simply Retro. If it doesn't seem quite familiar, I changed one simple thing...can you guess what it is? This was my least favorite pattern in the book, but when I thought of eliminating the vertical sashing strips, and then reversing the colored/background fabrics, it made all the difference for me.
In the original, the pinwheels are white, whereas in mine, they are printed. Clear as mud? Anyways, now I really like this pattern, as I always love pinwheels.
It's backed in a voile, which makes it so silky and soft, and I free motion quilted it in a swirly pattern, which I haven't done for awhile.
Here's a mosaic of all the quilts I've made from Simply Retro so far.
If I really do make every one in the book, I've got 5 more to go, but there's two that I'm contemplating leaving out... so that would be 3 left!
