Sewing, not just organizing, has been taking place in the quilt lab. Using antique fabric from my collection, I put together this 16-patch quilt. It is about 24 inches square. Each small square is 3/4 inch finished. I had found bundles of the black and red fabrics on an antiquing trip--there are two different prints--and I wanted to highlight them in a little quilt. I originally had a large-scale floral border, but found as I was getting ready to quilt, the floral fabric was weak and would rip when tugged on. I switched to the red and white geometric and am happy with it.
When I make a quilt like this, I cut many lights and darks for the 16-patches. I lay them out the way I like and usually have left overs.
I listed several new items in my Etsy shop including these patchwork pillowcases. Start your collection today!
