I have been a busy bee playing with my
newest fabric collection Vintage Happy.
Today I have 3 new patterns listed in my shop.
This first one is called
I used 72 - 10" squares of Vintage Happy and a small amount of
several matching solids to make the quilt.
I think the blocks remind me of the back of the dryer drum…
or a laundry symbol and so that is how it got it's name!
The blocks are rotary cut and pieced…
then turned into a circle with the help of my large
Bee in my Bonnet Circle Ruler.
Afterwards they are machine appliquéd.
It may look complicated but I promise it's sew easy…
(and easily addictive if I may say so)
I used this fabric from Vintage Happy for the back.
It's called the Vintage Cloth but I like to call it my
Vintage Victoria's Secret print…wink;)
And speaking of Vintage Victoria's Secret…
next up is my quilt of vintage bra's…
I chose to use a new Riley blake solid
for the background called Petal Pink…
Don't you think pink is a perfect color for a bra quilt?
I designed four different bra blocks called…
Training Bra, 34B, C Cup and Double D!
I mixed and matched Vintage Happy prints and a few solids...
And finished it off with a scrappy binding:)
The blocks are all rotary cut and machine pieced.
And last but not least is
this quilt called of course...
This quilt is inspired by
my childhood camping trips.
My parents would load all of us kids
(there were 10 of us plus our Irish Setter)
in the station wagon and
off to the mountains we would go!
We were a close family
inside that station wagon …
whether we wanted to be or not!..hehe:)
everything in this quilt is
rotary cut and machine pieced as well:)
I started off by making the station wagon...
Then the vintage trailer
And then pieced the letters
to spell out camping...
And put them all together and sewed lots
of Vintage Happy squares around them:)
I backed it with this print from
inspired by vintage sheets:)
I made this for our trailer and
I can't wait to sleep
warm and cozy under this quilt
on our next camping trip!
I also included this Vintage Trailer pillow in the pattern.
I plan on using this pattern a little later
to make a quilt with all different Vintage Trailers:)
Each new pattern has just been listed
It feels so good to be able to show you
some of what I have been up to!
I have one more
Vintage Happy pattern coming
but it won't be ready
until Spring Quilt Market:)
Have a quilty kind of day!
P.S. I'm excited to be teaching
my Vintage Camping quilt
in a 3 day workshop May 1, 2 and 3rd
at The Quilt Barn in Kimberly, Idaho.
If you are in the area…
to see if there is a
spot available and come sew with us!!!
