A Cheery Finish


Today I would like to share my latest finish. About 20 years ago long after my grandmother had passed away my grandfather sold his farm house to downsize into a smaller house. At the auction my sister purchased a big box of old fabric scraps and partially finished quilt blocks. She dug them out a while ago and asked me to use the old fabrics as well as some new fabrics to finish some quilts for her, myself and my mom. The fist quilt finished using fabrics and blocks from the box can be seen here.

For this quilt the nine patch blocks were already completed but a little crooked (my grandmother didn't have a rotary cutter). I trimmed all the nine patch blocks to 10 inch squared then added some 10 inch blocks that had a hint of wonkiness.

 

The quilt measures: Um... I'll update later lol
Pattern: Mine
Fabrics used: Timeless Treasures, Robert Kaufman found here, Henry Glass found here,  Moda Oh Deer! and my grandmas vintage squares.
Quilted by: Me with straight lines 1/4 inch apart.

I just love how bright and cheery it is! Here are a couple up close photos...



Thanks for stopping in!!
