1930s Baby Quilt

 2nd attempt at quilting, 1st attempt at HSTs. woot!

I first visited my local quilt shop 3 months ago, and when I stepped in the door I was greeted by this fantastic lady with a warm smile. We gabbed and gabbed for what seemed like forever, and by the time I left I had enough fabric and inspiration to make three different baby quilts. I'd never quilted before, but Jeana was really encouraging.

me + 1930s reproduction prints = <3

I'm not sure if these are all 1930s reproduction fabrics, but they came together in a fat quarter bundle. I bought it and spent a few weeks falling in and out of love with these prints before cutting into them. After piecing all the HSTs I spent another week or so figuring out what to use for a border. The only print from my bundle that they had more of was the brown dot, which I decided to use as backing and binding. The yellow spoke to me. I went for it. I think it looks awesome.


  1. I love this quilt! It's so beautiful and I love the story behind it! Love the border! I'm new to quilting now! I made a mini wall quilt and know the basics. I'm currently working on a twin size quilt for myself and have other plans to make more :)

  2. This is awesome!! Love the fabrics :) Look at those perfectly lines, only your second attempt at quilting?!! brilliant!


I love hearing from you, thanks for stopping by!
