I got a new antique quilt top today. Made in a scrappy pattern.
At first it looks like a lot of random squares but it is actually made up of nine patch blocks. 5 of the squares in the nine patch are made up of 4 patch blocks. I drew lines around some of the nine patch blocks in this picture
The sashing is made up of yellow squares and 4 patch blocks.
There is a tremendous variety of fabrics in this top. The fabrics range from probably 1860 – 1900 and I can’t stop looking at them all. I keep finding a new one.
I took pictures of all of the nine patch blocks so you can get an idea of the fabrics. I did not photograph all the 4 patch blocks used for the sashing but you can get a good idea of the range used. This quilter had a great supply in the scrap bag!
