This 1930’s One Patch was a fun and easy quilt to make as a wedding gift for my sister and new brother-in-law.
It started in 1997 when I purchased a bag of 1930’s nine patch blocks and lots of 3″ squares at a local antique shop for $7.50. I put it aside to work on another time.
The bag kept calling to me. In November 1998 I sorted through the bag, organized the blocks, and started sewing. It did not take long to realize there were not enough 3″ squares to make a bed size quilt.
Um…now what? I really wanted the entire top to be 1930 fabrics.
Oh yes, my grandma’s fabric that I inherited. A lot of it was from the 1930’s. I sifted through all that fabric and cut more 3″ squares. And then more…
Once I started working on it, the top went fast. I added a brown print border that looked like it could have been the right age. The top was completed by the end of November 1998.
During 1999 and 2000, I hand quilted the center 9 Patch blocks. Then I tied the remainder of the quilt.
The quilt is bound with the same fabric as the border.
Finished size is 82″ x 88″.
This 1930’s One Patch quilt was fun to do. It sure would have gotten done faster if I had not been distracted by other projects. Oh well, it is done. And as important is that it is loved and appreciated.
