Another roll of the dice this weeks brings up number 3. Out comes my list again to tell me that this is my 1930s baby quilt. I received a gift of assorted 1930s fabrics when we caught up with my pen-friend Margaret in Birmingham, England, way back in 2008. On our return home I purchased a few more fabrics and made these Cobblestone blocks. And there they sat, and waited, and waited.
1930s Cobblestone Blocks
Last time this UFO surfaced some months ago I had put all the blocks together. I’m happy with the white sashing between the 1930s colours in the blocks – it gives the quilt a lovely crisp look, I feel. Then I used up the remaining coloured squares on the pieced backing.
The completed top
Finally, the layers have been pinned together and I’ve started on the simple machine quilting. With the bonus of a free weekend at home, I’m certainly hoping to get this project completed this week.
