    Using 30s fabric

    Looking for ideas for quilt patterns using 30s fabric. I have enough 10” squares for four quilts.
    Thanks

    One would be the beautiful Fan pattern. Another might be Grandmother's Flower Garden. Dresden Plate would be gorgeous in 30s fabrics.

        Dresden plate was the first to come to mind.

          I used a bunch of 30s fabrics in a Pins and Paws quilt a while back, with white for the background. 12 blocks total, 3 x 4 layout. Came out really sweet-looking.

          Whatever pattern you use will be lovely!

              30's fabric? Is it from the 30's or is it reproduction 30's. If it is authentically 30's then I would certainly be looking for traditional 30
              s patterns like the fan and the garden . 4 patch and 9 patch patterns are good too.

                  Thank you for the input. My 30s fabric is reproduction not original. I was thinking about using the nine patch hourglass pattern Jenny did a tutorial on recently. Thoughts?

                    That's a nice one and would look good if you plan on adding a lot of white. If you don't want to chop your 30's into such small pieces I suggest you look at the Super Simple Hourglass. That turns out great, it is my number one pattern that I would make over and over again and it is really easy. Basically two 4-patch units sewed together on all 4 sides then cross cut diag two cuts like a big X.

                      I made this granny square w/ a layer cake, and had enough left to make a piano key boarder from 1 LC.

                      It's really cute in 30's fabrics.

                        I'm making Sisters Choice blocks from a 30s reproduction jelly roll and I'm loving how it's turning out. Jenny did a tutorial - she called it Studio Star.

                          I did a 9 patch on point with Sue and Sam appliques in the border

                            Love it , but need to use the 10” blocks I already cut. Thinking maybe I could use one of the pinwheel or hourglass block patterns
