Modern Antiques: Virtual Trunk Show

Boy do we have a Friday treat for you! 
Check out all of Rose Ann's quilt designs featuring her new collection, Modern Antiques. 

We'll let Rose Ann introduce you to her patterns: 

First up is County Fair. Originally designed as a Saturday Sampler pattern at Rose Ann's shop, Quilter's Emporium, this design is beautiful in Modern Antiques. This isn't your typical block sampler--they're not blocks that you see every day. These blocks are helpful for quilters looking to expand their skills. I especially like Striped Star (3rd row, left) Cross My Heart (2nd row, right), Double Star (top row, middle), and Wonky Star (3rd row, middle). I also love the sashing, incorporating the engineered border stripe. The pieced border uses up the scraps from making the blocks.

Rose Ann has designed a series of patterns - Sisters Patterns. Any two of the Sisters Patterns can be made from a fat quarter bundle of the collection. 

Here's Cracker Jack: So fun and fast, and bright and colorful. It's wonderful with these fabrics because you see the whole pattern of each fabric in the half-square triangles.

Churn Dash Candy is a vintage style quilt that incorporates everybody's favorite block--the Churn Dash. It's fast and easy, and you don't have to worry about points. This uses 26% of a FQ bundle, plus background.

 Antique 4 Corners: Remade in Modern Antiques, this is the pattern that started the fabric collection! A quilt just like Grandma would have made--lots of piecing!

Our remake uses the engineered stripe from the Modern Antiques collection--look how similar it is to the original pieced border from the antique quilt:
Can you tell which is which? 

Can I Have Your Autograph? is a brand new pattern. It brings back the autograph quilts that we saw in the 30s and 40s. It's perfect for a wedding or baby quilt, and you can lay it out in several different ways, which are shown below.

Layout variations:

Hidden ShooFly: This pattern is a free download on the Benartex website. It's a twenty-block pattern and the corners make hidden Shoofly blocks.
