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.
