Last week, I mentioned that I was going to put together a little wall quilt for my Pink room. I did that over the weekend and finished it up yesterday morning.
It started out with this, an unstitched, vintage stamped tablerunner that I found at a flea market awhile back:
I pulled out a few of my 1930's reproduction prints:
Then I added 2 borders. When the front of the quilt was done, I ironed a piece of fusible fleece to the back of the quilt knowing that I had no intention of hand or machine quilting it!
Before sewing the back on, I added a sleeve into the seam at the top, attached to the backing fabric so I could hang it. I wanted to do it all on the machine rather than by hand. Then I sewed the back to the quilt like a pillowcase, leaving an opening at the bottom for turning right side out. I blind stitched the opening at the bottom closed and pressed the entire quilt.
Last, I made a few fabric yo-yo's to sew onto the corners of the stitched piece using some vintage buttons in the center of the yo-yo's. They are sewn through to the back into smaller buttons. The purpose of this was to hold the front of the quilt and the back of the quilt together. Like I said, I didn't want to "quilt" it.
Here is the finished quilt:
On the other side of the dresser I have a vintage mirrored dresser tray with a small lamp. The mirror reflects the light. It's really pretty in person.
This quilt looks very "1930's"! It looks a little babyish but I don't care, I like that look and the pretty pastel colors!
