Day 3 From My Solids Vault and Free Pattern
98 Dancing Squares
All solids in the center with bright yellow rayon thread for machine applique stitching. Yes, I know there is a print in the border! But I started with only solids. I remember visiting G Street Fabrics in Rockville, Maryland and buying 1/2 yard cuts of a dozen or more of these solids. That was an extravagant purchase for me when my daughters were young. I quilted it myself on a Handi Quilter (one of the first ones on the market in the mid 1990s). This quilt was stolen (along with almost 3 dozen others) back in 2005. I have tried to reproduce it, but I didn't use solids. Here is a picture of the newer quilt:
