Vintage HST Mini Quilt

Sunday, I showed you bits of a little quilt I was working on made from vintage scraps. The binding is finished and here it is!IMG_0791.JPGI use a single fold binding technique on this and it turned out well except for one thing, I cut my strips too wide! I haven’t done a single fold in a while and had forgotten how narrow I need to cut my strips. I didn’t realize this until the binding was sewn to the front so it stayed that way.

IMG_0783.JPGMy little quit finished up at 9″ by 12″. I used part of a feed sack for the back. The binding is a reproduction print in the perfect poison green. It is simply quilted in vertical lines.

    These “little” quilts are simply ADORABLE! I may have to make some. We have a local Santa’s Workshop and these would make precious doll quilts.
