Thirties 16 Patch Quilt

 Yeah, my 16 patch is quilted. I started this scrappy quilt at least two years ago and thought I'm never going to get it done. I added a few solid squares with the 30's reproduction fabric.
 I'm glad I went with a border. Now I can't wait to get the binding on.
 Another top I quilted and I love how the quilting shows up on the white fabric. I am going to keep this one for myself.
 I quilted Michelle's Cake Mix quilt. The fabric is beautiful. I made a Cake Mix quilt before for myself using a layer cake and jelly roll, but I think it will make an adorable scrappy quilt. I'm always looking for cute and fast patterns to use my stash.
 
Happy quilting,
Millie

I like both your quilts, Millie, and I see a lot of fabrics in that 16 patch that I have or have used. I love the 30's prints, too. And what a beautiful job of quilting on all of them. I seem to remember you posting about a cake mix quilt and this one you've quilted is really pretty!

Your 16 patch is amazing. And you used your scraps over the years! I hope you will be telling how you used the scraps, chose them, saved them etc to make this wonderful quilt. I want to make one like it, but just dealing with all those scraps...makes me put it off...but with seeing yours...I am inspired again!
