1930's BABY QUILT

The quilt that Cathi at http://crazedquilter.blogspot.com, is working on reminded me of a baby quilt I did last year in a similar design. It is mostly 30's repros. They are always so cheerful. When I first got into quilting, these are the fabrics that I searched for at quilt shows, etc. I like the busy little prints of any era, actually. The block for this quilt is from a Debbie Caffrey book called Open A Can Of Worms. All the quilts are made with 2-1/2" strips. It is a great book and I have made many of the quilts in it. A rare thing, I assure you! Just a quick blog post today. I have to catch up reading what the rest of you are saying! Oh, by the way, Linda, the quilt behind me in the photo is not one of mine. The picture was taken at a quilt show at the Seattle Center! Ha! Figures you would ask!

I really like that block. Maybe I should look for that book!

ooh I like this setting for that block too...although, I suppose, looking at it, it is probably two alternating blocks...very nice!!

You know what I like about it? It's a baby quilt that steps away from the typical pink and blue. It has a nostalgic look about it. Cute.

I really like the quilt. I have seen the quilt similarly called chicklets - free pattern available online. It is on my to do list. I will have to order the book from the library anyway to see if there is anything else in there I like.

I think this is great! I love the border with the points and squares, makes it an original setting!

I bet I wasn't the only once wondering about that quilt!

Several ways of dealing with that block--three that I know of and a variation I came up with, LOL--that's why I called it "Whatever"

Pretty quilt!

I love that baby quilt,reminds of confetti for some reason. What is the name of that pattern. It's a great way to use my scraps. Too cute!
