Default Quasi-Crazy Quilt from Vintage Scraps and Embroidery

Last summer I made a few blocks for this quilt and posted them on the board. Many months later the quilt is now finished.

It is a QAYG quilt set on point, and the blocks are made from embroidery pieces, such as old pillowcases and dresser scarves. I used the sew and flip technique with vintage fabric scraps (most are authentic, some are reproductions, some are unknown).

This quilt will be donated to the Red Willow Bible Camp quilt auction fundraiser.

Perfect use for the vintage linens! I've been collecting dresser scarves, pillowcases and anything else I can find with embroidery to make into a quilt. I really like how you did yours.

I love this quilt!!! I have a box of my grandma's hankies and dresser scarves. This is a great idea how to use them.
