Quilt Top Finished!

Today I worked on a quilt top. I had some wonderful blocks of Aunt Martha's "Saucy Suzy" pattern. I used the Book "Turning Twenty - Around the Block" for the pattern.

So all I had to collect was the book and 9 fat quarters. As an homage to vintage 30s quilts, I picked some solids.

Each fat quarter was cut the same, so it was easy. I had to trim the embroidery blocks to 8 1/2 x 10 1/2" and that was a little trickier. I put some painters tape on my square ruler and used it as a guide to place my blocks.

The finished quilt looks great! I am happy with the way it came out. It has vintage blocks, vintage colors, but a modern feeling. I'm putting some kits together for sale on!
