. . . after all, it's been a favorite of mine for a very long time and is featured in Childhood Treasures by Merikay Waldvogel. What appealed to me most was the simplicity of the 4-patches set with gingham, the large-scale floral on three sides only and the woven tape binding.
I had just enough Oakland Museum fabric (P&B Textiles 1998) for the border and several pinks to complete the four-patches. (I actually made this quilt once before which you can see here on Barb V's Hello Dolly! post.)
I hand-quilted cross-hatch in the center . . .
. . . and this design in the border.
You can see it better from the back.
When it came time to do the binding I thought this striped fabric looked a lot like woven Trenton tape so fussy cut it on the straight.
It looked okay after a little pressing :)
On another note . . .
I finished painting the first section of the upstairs hallway and hung a few quilts to make it a bit more presentable when guests arrived last week :)
