This summer I sewed these sweet little blocks – sometimes called Uneven Nine Patch or Puss in the Corner.
It took me a while to determine the setting fabric, but after several auditions, this one won – it was in ‘Toasted’ group last winter. I also decided that since the blocks are so tiny at 2″ finished, that I would make it a summer spread. Meaning, no batting. I selected a backing fabric, sewed around the four sides and left an opening to turn it right side out, and whip the opening closed. I love it on this antique doll cradle.
