The quilt that I am copying is from the book, Classic Crib Quilts. Because my scraps from the Album quilt are so small with just a few of each print, I knew I would need a scrappy quilt pattern with fairly small pieces. When I saw this little quilt, I knew right away that it was the one.
At first I thought I would hand piece the blocks, but there were so many seams to sew through that I quickly gave that up and stitched the next two on the machine — it was much easier. The fabrics are a mix of scraps from the Album quilt and another group of antique blocks I’ve had for a long time. Selecting the prints and then scrounging around trying to find enough of the required sized pieces is a lot of fun — another puzzle-type project.
The blocks will finish just slightly over 3″ and the vintage fabric in the background is going to be the sashing. I haven’t decided yet how many blocks to make. My favorite is the pink block — I love that XoXo print.
