Shipshewana Fabrics
Lolly's Fabrics is a marvelous shop. It is located in the Davis Mercantile which is a new three story building replacing the very old one that burned last year. The building has all kinds of shops. The fabric shop is the largest shop I've been in and has everything. They also make custom made quilts.
I decided to buy these reproduction prints. Please, please recommend what pattern I should use.

I've been collecting B&W fabrics and bought three more. The digital camera doesn't do them right.

I also bought 5 yards of a busy print for backing. (No pic) It was $5 per yard on the mark-down rack.

All good quality fabrics and such nice Amish sales clerks.

The reproduction fabrics are lovely. I would think some sort of very traditional pattren would look good. Maybe Churn Dash or Log Cabin? The possibilities are endless and I guess that is part of the problem.

I love the B&W's... they'll be so versatile. I'm not a big fan of vintage fabric myself, but can see why one might be drawn to your choices... Like joyce, I'd say any "traditional" pattern -- my first choice would be something like dresdan plate, or sunbonnet sues... What pattern screams "vintage quilt" to you???
