When the first 30s retro prints came out, I immediately fell in love with them. And I made lots of quilts from them! Since I haven’t been sewing as much, I thought I’d share a few. I soon realized I had enough for several posts! This first little quilt was one of my first attempts at hand appliqué. I found some vintage fabric swatches and reduced Sue to a size that would work with the swatches.
Sue ended up being just over 3 inches tall.
Mr. Wonderful bought me a little FQ bundle of the first Aunt Grace line and I remember feeling like I had won the lottery! I hand pieced, quilted, and appliqué this little quilt from them.
Then came this little quilt pieced while waiting for Daughter #1 at her dance lessons. She was four and now has three babies of her own.
I can’t take a lot of credit for this one. I bought a vintage block on eBay, added borders and quilted it.
This is about 30 inches square, so more f a crib quilt. I purchased the vintage blocks from a friend, added the sashing and corner stones and hand quilted it.
Next Thursday, I’ll share a few more from the archives. Have a lovely day!
