Yesterday I had a small window of opportunity between customer’s quilts to quilt one of our twenty something quilt tops.
There’s a story to this wee quilt. About 10 years ago I attended a Calling all Quilts Day in Hamilton. I bought a bag of blocks from the Trash and Treasure stall. These blocks matured in a cool dark place until July last year when Peggy pulled them out and made them into this very cute top. The outer border bandana type fabric was purchased in Texas when we visited in 2006.
Feathers aplenty across this top:
With that whole Red, white and blue theme a few stars seemed right for the borders:
Looks like a quilt for an all American boy doesn’t it?
The block is super simple to make. It’s called a shaded Four Patch or Trail to Treadleonia.It can be set in all sorts of ways. A marvellous way to use up scraps. The link I have given shows a way to make these blocks quickly.
