Sheryl of Temecula Quilt Co. showed some double nine patch blocks on her blog recently and asked for ideas for setting the blocks. They reminded me of this small ca. 1890 quilt top that I have. The blocks are set straight with an indigo fabric that has tiny white open circles.
The blocks are just under 12" and the top is 55"x67". It has a narrow border.
There are lots of wonderful fabrics in the 9 patches, spanning approx. 1870-1890.
What happened here? Just a wee bit short on the indigo fabric...
