Finish It Up Friday ~ Vintage Mini 9 Patch

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!

    Your quilt came out really good Katy! It really does look vintage, especially with that feed sack backing. And I never would have guessed which block you made if you hadn’t told me.
