    Do you have a link to the pattern you can share?

    Thanks.
    Here is a link...think it's the same pattern.

I may have to try Golden Threads to see if it makes the process a lot easier!
    Sue, Golden Threads is like a light weight velum or a heavy tissue paper. You can see through it to line-up your motif and it rips really easily. It's the remaining little pieces that are the pain. I took care of that by washing the quilt when it was finished.

    Ditto what everyone said - just gorgeous. I really love the use of the leftover fabric for the backing. I am going to start doing this going forward because I do not like to have too much left over fabric. I am not too big on the scrap saving.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. My "fabric choices" was a collection of 1930s fabrics that I've been collecting over the past few years (FQs and half yard cuts). What's great about these fabrics is that they all go together well!

    The pattern itself came from a Nancy Mahoney book called Treasures From the 30s. The quilt is actually on the cover. It's a lap quilt in the book but I enlarged it to be a twin. Oh, and I did a different border than the book.
