round robin

I have not had much sewing time since school let out...but I'm slowly plugging away on a round robin project for Christy (no blog) as part of A Dozen Quilters.

She asked for fabrics with a 30's vintage feel and anything goes.

Well, Christy does some amazing piece work...(the center block is hers...) Hollie has worked the next 'round'.

I thought I would dig out some vintage fabric and look for blues, reds and pinks.  I decided on hexagons, even though I have NEVER worked with them before!  I feel like - nothing says 1930's like a hexagon - but maybe that is just me??  I'm tentatively planning this:

What do you think? Am I headed in the right direction?  Am I even using fabric from the 30's???


  1. i love what you're doing. I'm no 30's expert, but I think you're totally on the right path. Such a great, original idea!!

  2. This is fabulous! I love it! It appears very 1930'S to me :)

  3. Jenny - I looked, polka dots have been around since the late 1800's - and your fabrics look ver-ry like my 1930's section in the store -go for it!

  4. Oooooh Jenny - I love it! I think it's definitely the right direction!!!

  5. Hi Jenny, That is so adorable!! Way to go!

  6. It is super sweet. Horray!
