1930’s Quilt Gallery II
Min, Constance and Patience are sitting on a pile of little quilts. The Human has been busy making several more Hitty quilts using old fabrics from the old yoyo quilt (Click here for previous posts about the yoyo quilt recycling project).
This is a gallery slideshow of the nine quilts I made. Each Quilt has a nine patch oriented on the diagonal in the centre. All the fabrics in the nine patch are from the original yoyo quilt. The green triangles framing the centre block are a modern fabric, but the same colour as one of the yoyo fabrics that I used up. The pink or blue triangles are from the original yoyos. The rectangular strips in the border are either vintage print (pink with white flowers outlined in grey) or modern reproduction 1930’s prints (green and white flowers; red, yellow and blue flowers on black cross-hatching; and yellow starburst pattern). The pink backing fabric turned over to make the outer border is vintage fabric, the grey print is as well, and the olivey green is reproduction 1930’s fabric.
Constance and Min are at this very moment in Tennessee, having accompanied their human to a carving workshop. A new Hitty sister is destined to accompany them home, and these little quilts will stay behind as gifts for the fellow carvers.
