Spring 2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry #2

I am excited to participate in the Spring 2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival. 

My second entry is a sampler quilt using 30's reproduction fabrics.  The blocks are traditional patterns that were originally published in The Kansas City Star newspaper in the 1930's.  The blocks for this quilt were made during a Block of the Month club at my local quilt shop in 2012. . . .and then the completed blocks sat there for over a year.   

My local quilt guild offered a challenge last fall for its members to complete a UFO project and bring the completed quilt back to our meeting in May.  I have finished my UFO and am looking forward to bringing it to our club meeting on Monday night.

I designed my own layout of the blocks.  This is my first quilt using 30's reproduction fabrics and the first time I used a "scrappy" binding.  

If you are new to my blog, I hope you will take some time to look around.  I would love for you to become a follower!
