This is my last finish for 2017.
These vintage blocks were purchased at an estate sale a few years ago.
I love finishing these old projects! The appliqué bits were all basted.
I used black pearl cotton to appliqué these blocks in a fashion that was popular in the 1930s and 40s.
Normally I like to keep the quilting on these very traditional. But the reality is, this quilt was begun in the last century and completed in this one. No one who looks at this quilting will ever be confused about that!
Here’s a look at the back. I used a plain, unbleached muslin.
Here are a few more photos taken after washing.
I love that texture!
Have a great day!
