Vintage Quilt Top
I thought I'd share an old quilt top I bought off eBay. I don't know much about dating fabrics but I think it's from the 1940s or 50s.
It's in great shape except for a very slight musty smell. I still can't believe I paid so little for it.
Can't you just see it spread on the grass out in the country with a wicker picnic basket sitting on top?
That cute little black and white check appears in the center of all the blocks.
This is my Jelly Roll from Saturday's Jelly Roll Jubilee class at a LQS. The fabric is Oh-Cherry-Oh by Moda.
The class sample was made up in the Friendship Braid pattern from the Jelly Roll Quilts book. It was modifies to include a small inner border and that is what the yellow fabric is for; red for the outer border. It's such a sweet cheery fabric line. Thanks for stopping by!
