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!

It’s a wonderful finish, looks great with your vintage sewing machine. I love the background fabric!! It’s perfect!
This is beautiful vintagey finish. I love your fabric choices 🙂
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.
The perfect piece on which to display your vintage machine.
What a cute little quilt. I’d love to see your machine collection.
Beautiful little finish, Katy! It looks fabulous with your vintage machine. Thanks for linking with TGIFF this week 🙂
It’s lovely and does look really nice with your vintage sewing machine. Nice finish!
