30's Fabric Love!

POTC Block 2 Done!

Now to choose the layout for Block 3 ...

Layout 1

Layout 2

Layout 3

Layout 4

I have already started stitching the outer pairs together
while I decide on the center focus of the block.

I find sometimes I gain a new perspective if I post photos on my computer.

Opinions always welcome!

For this block I switched out some of the kit fabrics
and switched in some fabrics from my stash.

I love sorting through my stash to find a hidden gem of a fabric.

I am sew lucky to have this wonderful bounty of 10" squares.

These are from a fabric swap I ran a long time ago on a friendly forum ...

30's Layer Cake Fabric Swap 2010

In the end I got to keep this big beautiful stack!

I have very little 30's fabric in yardage,
but this is what I prefer
as I think a 30's quilt should always be scrappy
and made with bits and pieces swapped and shared with other quilters.

I did recently purchase the blue rick rack fabric,
originally in a layer cake of basics to supplement my prints,
but I love it so much I ordered a yard

It is from

Back Porch Basics by Wilmington Prints

Happy 30's Fabrics
