Vintage quilt

 My sister had bought some quilt squares my grandmother had made in their estate auction 17 years ago. They have sat in her basement until a couple weeks ago. She brought them over and asked if I could finish some quilts for her.
 
In the box I found these blocks that were already sewn together in strips. My grandmother didn't have a rotary cutter so the fabrics aren't exactly even.... But I think it adds character!
 
I have been able to get one quilt completed so far. Its been fun! I love the scrappy, vintage feel!
 
 
 


Thanks for taking the time to look!!

What a great story behind the fabric, it's really special as it's from your grandmother.

So nice to finish it off instead of passing it along to some charity. Its quite modern & funky really.
