    Working on (2) small quilts using 30s Repro prints for my cousin's grand daughters ( I convinced her on something quick and simple, at first she wanted Applique Butterflies).

    The Cousin wanted "all pinks" but I changed it some (too much Pink looks Pepto Bismolish to me...) ...anyway, here's the before photo ( because the quilting is already done but I have not taken a picture of the quilting).

    The second quilt needs the borders and then quilting/binding.

    I call this quilt Zig-Zag Rainbow.

    I love your quilt, I have never seen this pattern before, it looks like the old timey rick rack. You did a great job.

    No the pattern is not my own.
    But I changed the color format from the original Pattern used.
    This is the easiest and quickest way to make the blocks without fussing or trimming your blocks down.
    I did NOT trim any of the blocks on this quilt; just sewed them away using the 5" squares and following the steps for making the quick blocks. Thanks for your comments, it was quick, easy to make and machine quilt.

    I just love quilts made with 30's fabric. I have been using it often & still watch for more. DD saves me her scraps.
