Vintage quilt patterns have a long-lasting charm that quilters today still enjoy replicating. For quilters looking for a mix of pizzazz and sophistication, the 1930s Barn Raising Quilt is a beautiful pattern to start with. A diamond will radiate from the inside of your pattern with the use of colorful jelly roll quilt patterns and some very craftily constructed quilt block patterns. Once you've learned how to make a jelly roll quilt with an old fashioned flair, you can update this with your favorite fabrics and make it a permanent part of your home decor.

Love this old fashioned quilt pattern! It radiates charm and the off-center placement gives new interest and flair to an old, vintage pattern. I like the idea of using even the smallest of scraps to create this type of quilt, it reminds me of the great women in the past who never wasted anything and found use for things most people today would just throw away. I love the pastel colors in this quilt and from a distance it reminds me of rows and rows of pretty flowers. This one is on my "to make" list!

I love this one.

love this quilt - could have been made yesterday. amazing what can be done with simple squares!

I'm partial to the vintage look and the diamond designs are a favorite of mine.

This is an AMAZING quilt. It is very simular to a quilt my meme had on her bed when I was growing up. This is the kind of quilting I want to learn how to do. Amazing job.

This pattern can be used with scraps, so it has my vote. 1930's quilts were made from any material they could find--feed sack scraps after your mother made you a dress from the feed sack made up a lot of scraps in grandma's quilts.

I love this because the layout reminds me of a log cabin quilt - the log cabin is probably still my favorite block, the very first quilt I made was a log cabin quilt

This reminds me of the quilts my grandmother made during the Depression...no scrap was too small to us some way! Great job!

Love the off-center look and, yes, there are so many possibilities. This quilt would look nice with a background of blue and then all 1930s fabrics. Of course, a dark background with all light squares would be nice too. Just take this pattern a little further and it could suit all tastes and also be so different from most quilts. Vintage look with vintage looking fabrics and modern look with modern looking fabrics. The choice is yours. This is the quilt to win!

I think this one should win it has more possibilities.

Love the colors and feel of movement

I think this is a much more interesting. Quilt than the Summer quilt. It is not a difficult quilt, but much more movement.

I really like this offset design setting of the quilt- it is very pretty. The other one is an interesting design too but I like this one much better.

Love the colors - and most of the layout - guess I'm just not into "offsided" patterns - but I could probably get used to it if I had this quilt on my own bed!!! ;o)

I love anything with 1930s fabrics. Really like the layout of this quilt.

The barn raising title led me to expect a log cabin but surprise. Here is a beautiful patch quilt that allows for lots of options and creativity. Color it your way, soft and sweet, strong with a dark background, scrappy or well orchestrated the choice is yours. The setting, off centered,allows for more movement. If the center background is darker and then softens/lightens as you move out it would add even more dimension. The ripples of a stone is still water. Yep, the traditional patterns keep on giving.

Like the look and the colors of this quilt. Hope to make one soon

I love the organized randomness of this quilt!

Love this!
