Old yet modern

I sit behind customer quilts and look at them closely for a long time while I long arm them. I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful fabrics chosen for this Civil War reproduction d9p quilt. It amazes me how these reproduction  prints are really very modern. They are on a smaller scale, but they still have a very modern feel. I guess that’s why I like civil war reproduction fabric so much and why I also like to use modern fabrics. If you look very closely at each of these little blocks you will see what I mean, they could be used in modern quilts if they were larger scale and had brighter colors. I guess everything that is old is really new again is my grandmother used to say.
