1930s Improv Nine-Patch
Look at this sweet little quilt I found at our local antique mall. It's a swell design and would be very easy to make.
Here are the actual measurements - the centers measure ~2 3/4" - note that all are not exactly square.
The strips surrounding them are from 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" wide. Eight different fabrics are used in the log cabins - some blocks only use 7 different fabrics.
And then there are the 5 yellow squares. They measure roughly 7 1/2" square.
Make one! I think I will. It could be a nice gift for a little one ...
