This little quilt was sewn for my daughter, Emily, when she left for college. At the time, she really liked pink and black. It’s made primarily with feedsack scraps (leftovers from the Kansas Dugout Quilt) and a few vintage dress scraps. I blanket stitched the scraps by hand onto 4″ pieces of muslin using black cotton floss. Four of the little blocks were then combined to make 20 larger blocks. I selected a heavy cotton waffle fabric for the sashing and borders to match the thickness of the blocks. The feedsack triangle border was machine stitched and then embroidered with the same blanket stitch. The quilt has a thin cotton batting and was tied with embroidery floss. It’s heavy-ish and kind of funky.
