Along with the 1930s fabric pieces that I ordered from MaryB'sRepros&More I ordered some of her precut 1.5" squares in 1930s prints. Since my partner for the February Banner Swap loves pastels & blues, I thought I'd make her a little 4"x6" patchwork quilt. Well, the squares DO measure 1.5"x1.5" but apparently my hand sewn seams were not quite 1/4" because this little beauty measures almost 5"x7"...so it's way too big for this swap. I'll just keep this one & I'm already well on my way to another banner for this month.
The back of this little quilt is one of the 1930s prints from my last post. It's one I got last year from Joyofquilting1. Then I just folded over the edges on the front & did a little self binding to finish it off. It was lots of fun to do...and I guess if I do this again, I'll do one that is 3x5 squares then add borders to make it a good 4"x6". I still like this little quilt...even f it is too big.
I'm linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching...be sure to visit there for lots of eye candy & inspiration. There's always something wonderful to discover there.
