As you look at this quilt, can't you make the argument that simple, rather unplanned or quilts of necessity are the best?
If all the blocks on this quilt were planned and the same, it would be a lot more boring. The design is simple and familiar - 9 patches (the squares are 1 1/2" - 1 3/4"), with varying sashing. It's the scrapbag of 1930s fabrics used that make it interesting - for the initial user and for us now.
This quilt measures 65" x 79". A blanket serves as batting. It is well loved and well used.
I remember I took it home with me because I liked the colors. It will be for sale at the September garage sale.....
