What's not to love about this 1940's crib quilt?
The darling-ly small Dresden Plates are made of period printed cottons, and set within striped medium blue and white sashing.
The quilt maker carefully set that striped fabric in sync with their direction. S/he must have had a lot of that beautiful blue ... s/he used it for the back, and even cut it on the diagonal for a bias-cut separately applied binding. Mitered corners are another lovley touch.
Hand quilted in nice even stitches. S/he quilted small clamshells into the borders.
