So Much Fun!

I made this the other day.  It is a project from Krista's Make it Take it book.    I didn't use selvages though... I opened up the box I store all the little bits of vintage fabric in and cut up a bunch of 2.5" squares.  I did add in some non-vintage black and white prints for contrast but aside from the binding, and those black and white squares, this was made out of fabric dating from the 40s through to the 70s.  I recognize some of the prints from my childhood as my Mum sewed a lot and much of this is from her scraps.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun to sew up and will be just as fun to take with my featherweight to the next sew in.

I love that daisy print with the mauve, lilac and blue!  That is an old one!

Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it up Fridays!.
