Vintage Quilt

A long time ago, I won a give-away from another blogger, and she sent me an assortment of vintage scraps.  Before I sorted them into my stash I thought it would be fun to "memorialize" the collection with a small quilt.  I kept it very simple and just cut out two sizes of squares, and sewed them into a double four patch:

I had some "vintage" fabric of my own, a blue calico from my mom's stash, and so I used that for the back.  Instead of quilting it, I tied it at each of the intersections.  The only new fabric is the binding -- I had just enough leftover from the apron.
This will go on my Wall o' Quilts by the stairs, the spot for all my small projects that I don't know what to do with.
