I made my last quilt project with a special purpose in mind. I have an old dresser and some old stuffed animals I wanted to display. I had some leftover nine-patch blocks made with 30s reproduction fabrics. I sewed them together, tea-dyed the whole thing and when I liked the result, I tea-dyed some more fabric for backing and binding. I hand quilted it and now it is the perfect place to display my old stuffies on top of an old dresser.
