{Vintage Fabric Patchwork Quilt}


OH!! HI THERE!! :) Thought I fell off the planet did you?? Well, kinda,... a little, maybe? I've been moving, painting, visiting with family, furniture hunting (on a budget) and SEWING. :) This is a pretty little quilt I made just for the heck of it. It's made from a stack of charm squares that I won from a little giveaway on Miss Rose Hip's blog. If you haven't checked it out,... do, you won't regret it, her pictures and creations are so beautiful!


I went strictly patchwork with this one. After I had all the squares together it was a bit small so I hunted down some more (larger) vintage fabrics (sheets) from thrift stores for some sashing and backing. I like the result.


This is the first straight line quilting I have attempted since this debacle. I did draw out straight lines and used the walking foot and everything turned out just perfect.



Looks like a nice little picnic blanket doesn't it?? So,... I've been in Texas now for about 5ish weeks, the Mr. is still in Baltimore and I am about to meet up with him there this week to get our house packed up and headed out this way. He will be joining me here at the beginning of April when we will move into our temporary home here in DFW. (did I mention that he is doing the 23 hour drive AGAIN??? ALONE??? Well,... with TWO DOGS??? Good luck with that!) ;) I also have a couple photo shoots and a BABY SHOWER while I'm in Maryland! Yay! I wonder what kind of cool stuff my little guy is going to get! I can't wait to see my man and my friends and family in Baltimore again!

Stay tuned for a little baby boy quilt! :)
