1930’s Rail Fence Wall Hanging

Use cheerful 1930s reproduction prints in a delightful wall hanging. To bring a little calm to the many small prints, choose mottled prints for the triangle-squares. Fabrics are from the Toy Chest Conversationals, Toy Chest Florals, and Vintage Solids II collections, all by Sara Morgan for Washington Street Studio.
