So a while ago, I got a hold of some 30's repro scraps.....
and sent them off to one of my online quilting bees.
I have them back now!
And I've added borders to some of the blocks that were in the scraps, so that I now have all these blocks to play with:
They are each just wonderful.
Each block was worked on by someone other than me, and that makes it really special to me!
And now I am contemplating how to piece the quilt.
I'm keeping this one. And it would be lovely to finish it up while it's still cold enough to be used this year!
So here are the options.
white (well, ivory I think) sashing.
pieced scrappy sashing. Many of the blocks have ivory edges, but not all.
Since it's a quilt that will be used heavily in a house with toddlers, I like the idea of using prints instead of a light solid.
Add a thin ivory border on all blocks, then use scrappy sashing.
So what do you think?
Please, even if you don't usually comment, I'd really appreciate hearing your thoughts!
