It’s been a busy week and I’ve had little time to sew. While casting about the sewing room yesterday, I spied these little vintage 9 patches on my design wall. I needed a quick finish, no matter how small, so I decided to do something with these.
I only had five so I decided to piece another from my stash of vintage scraps.
The piecing isn’t perfect, but vintage blocks are rarely a consistent size.
I used a bit of feed sack on the back and resisted the urge to overquilt this little doll quilt.
I love displaying little quilts with my vintage sewing machines. This little sewing machine dates to 1910. I purchased it from the brother of a friend.
This book is a great resource for those of you interested in vintage toy sewing machines. There is a second volume now also.
My little machine has the four spoked wheel as shown in the photo below.
Here’s a little more info on this model from the book.
I did wash my little quilt when I finished. Here’s how it looked after.
Now it has the antique look and feel that I love.
Have a great day!
