30's reproduction fabrics
Maria pieced this top of cute 30's reproduction fabrics. It's 67 x 85. I love the pastel colors and the secondary design of big circles that the pattern creates. It's a combination of two blocks, shoo fly and 54-40 or fight.
I quilted a similar pattern in each block. There are 4 flower petals in the center square and corner squares. The triangle pieces and the plain white blocks each have a hook, then some filler in the other areas:
54-40 or fight block
shoo fly block
The border is a soft green, and and I quilted hooks to match the body of the quilt.
The quilting shows up great on the back as it is a plain white.
It almost has the look of a whole cloth quilt:
