3 New Vintage Happy Patterns!...

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
 Tumble Dry
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…
appropriately named

"Support Group"

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...
 Vintage Camping! 
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:)

Good Times:)

As usual…
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
 Vintage Happy…
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:)

Until then…
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!!!

What cute patterns, I love all 3 of them! I love the bra pattern, especially in 4 different sizes!!! Lol! We had a station wagon like that, it brings back a lot of memories for me too!

Tammy said...

Love your new quilts Lori! Now to decide which one I will make first :)

I love the bra quilt. It's kind of sassy. When I was young, our family of eight had the station wagon but not the camper. Ah, memories. Love all your work. I'm making my second Bee in my bonnet quilt.

Absolutely LOVE them. And the fabrics are too drool over. Thanks so much for sharing, on my way to pick up these gems.

Can't wait for the pattern for all the vintage campers. My sister is a camping nut and I would so much love to make it for her. Over the past 40 years she has owned so many different campers, she would love it!

Christina said...

I love the names of the quilts! Great colours too.

Diane said...

Love Tumble Dry!! It is so cute!

Bev said...

I had to comment to say that I think you are such a smart, talented designer! The colors and the quilt patterns you come up with are right on trend. WTG!

You sure were busy - I love your quilts. Do you ever have someone follow you for a day? A day in Lori Holt's Quilting Life - a day to soak up all the fun! That would be motivation indeed - you sure make sewing fun!

Wow - so, so cute! I especially love the camping quilt - reminds me of my childhood camping trips but there were only 7 of us stuffed into our station wagon! xo, Nan
