1930s Scrappy Wall Hanging

Collectors of 1930s reproduction prints will enjoy this wall hanging or small throw featuring the Everything But the Kitchen Sink collection by RJR Fabrics.

Use solid white sashing strips, then add black-and-white prints in the sashing squares, setting triangles, and border. This provides an unexpected checkerboard look, which is a nice contrast to the soft pastels.

Assemble Blocks


You will use eight assorted 1930s print 1-1/2 x3-1/2" rectangles, four assorted 1930s print 1-1/2 x2-1/2" rectangles, and four black dot print 1-1/2" squares for each block.

Though you can randomly pick rectangles while sewing, consider presorting them into 25 piles, one for each block, so every block has a pleasing combination.

1. Referring to Block Assembly Diagram, lay out eight assorted 1930s print 1-1/2 x3-1/2" rectangles, four assorted 1930s print 1-1/2 x2-1/2" rectangles, and four black dot print 1-1/2" squares in six rows.

2. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row.

3. Join rows to make a block. Press seams in one direction. The block should be 6-1/2" square including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to make 25 blocks total.
