Was thrilled at how my first machine-quilted top turned out recently. Had several of these 9 patch blocks for a number of years before getting around to making enough for a queen size quilt. The fabrics in this quit (the 9 patches and blue sashing) are all 30s and 40s fabrics, including the blocks I pieced together. Also yellow in the blocks and in the squares between blocks is old fabric (36" wide). Some of the yellows are darker in value – but that adds to the charm, don't you think.
Kinda got carried away with piecing the backing for this quilt.
Have been admiring quilts that have a little "extra" added to the back and maybe I went over board with this one. Wanted to use up as many of the 2.5" squares that were left over from the piecing of the blocks on the front. And, I pretty much did that. What few squares I had left were incorporated into the patchwork coasters I posted earlier.
