    Abby's Jacks in 30s Reproduction

    This is my second finish of 2014! It was also sitting around, top completed, basted together, waiting for some love, so it was done about two weeks after the first. The pattern is called Abby's Jacks but I don't remember the magazine it was from (no longer in my possession). I've been semi-obsessed with the 30s reproductions since the very first time I saw them, so this quilt has been mine from the start. (Plenty of time to make things for others, right?) FMQ on my own machine, which was not the most fun I've ever had quilting but I did learn quite a bit fumbling my way through.

    Love the 30's reproductions. The pattern looks like an Eleanor burns pattern I found in either simplicity or McCall pattern book

    So cute and a good way to use up leftovers from my Jacob's Plate work in progress. Good work.

    I especially like the bolder 30s repro colors that you used, like royal blue and reds (even blacks). There are lots of them in the quilt I got from my great-grandmother so they are very authentic to that period. Thanks for sharing your great quilt with us.

    Love your quilt, I have the same pattern but it's straight set, not on a diagonal. Love the fabric too.

    Good for you! Check that one done! Second of the year? Nice. If you continue throughout the year at this rate, you'll have completed 8 quilts by the end of the year!!!
    Go forth and sew!
