1933 Single Irish Chain Quilt

When I first saw the Moda 1933 fabrics, I fell in love. Fell hard. I normally don't work with 1930s reproduction prints but I've always flirted with the idea. So when Chloe's Closet came out with this line, I had to do something with them!

I thought a simple single irish chain quilt would be perfect for the prints. It's old school but not boring, and the end result is just so sweet :)

I used my two favourite prints for the backing and binding.

Red + tiny flowers = LOVE.

The quilt ended up measuring 41" by 53" and it's currently in the shop SOLD! :)

So sweet. I love the simplicity of it. That backing fabric is my favorite too. I've been waffling about getting some . . .Oh, alright, you've talked me into it.
