Pretty Vintage Quilt

When I asked my niece what she wanted for her 21st birthday I wasn't expecting her to say a quilt. She asked for a quilt that was "pretty" or "vintage". I loved the idea of trying a vintage quilt.
It is made up of about 80% vintage fabric, one fabric from spotlight and some Jeniffer Paganelli fabrics. I made it big enough so that it can be folded at the end of her queen size bed.
Thank you Jennie for giving me some of the fabrics, I still owe you a parcel which I haven't forgotten about. There was no way I was going to be able to find all those vintage fabrics without a bit of help!
I was so happy with how it turned out - I think it looks both vintage and pretty!

That's gorgeous! I love the colours. I am nearly finished my quilt for Squishy. It is my first big quilt so I am a bit excited. I have only made one quilt before this and it was tiny. Like big enough for a pram or car seat. This is one is cot sized so I am slowly working my way up.
