Rescued Crib Quilt
I bought this quilt on a road trip through the Midwest a few years ago - somewhere in Indiana, I believe. I think I would pass it up today but I am not sorry I have it. I consider this quilt to be a pattern, a design that would work nicely if it was reproduced.
The squares in the nine-patch blocks measure 3/4" finished. There are10 rows of nine-patches on point. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. The quilt measures 30" x 41".
My favorite part of this quilt is the little string of blocks in the top and bottom borders.

This would inspire me to get any and all the pastels I have in my stash to recreate! A beautiful example of a utilitarian quilt!ReplyDelete

LOVE that border and well nine patches, my favorites to make.
One I would have rescued too!
Thanks for sharing
This would be a fun one to make up...like I need another project? The danger of blogging....ReplyDelete
really lovely! Just think of all the sleepy little children this quilt covered. Thank you for rescuing it from (shudder) the cutters.ReplyDelete
