A Wonderful Project for Your 30s Reproduction Scraps!
A simple pattern and reproduction 1930s prints come together for a quilt that brims with vintage charm. They say that sometimes simple is best, and that’s clearly the case with this lovely quilt.
Constructed entirely of half-square triangles, the quilt is an easy one to make (learn how to make 8 half-square triangles at a time, of any size, here). The magic of this quilt is in the fabrics.
Select a wide variety of vintage prints, as well as low-volume white prints for the background. Or, take the quilt in a different direction entirely. We can easily imagine it made up in beautiful batiks that are similar in value.
While there are no exact instructions for making this quilt, you’ll find that the quilter from Beech Tree Lane Handmade provided enough information to make a similar quilt.
The finished quilt, as shown, is 50″ x 60″. Change the size by adjusting the number of blocks. Or, make the blocks bigger or smaller.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
