Vintage Housewife Sew Along - The Big Finish...and a new book!!

Welcome to the Big Finish week of the 
Vintage Housewife Sew Along

 if you need to download the 
Sew Along Guide and 
if you are just joining us and 
need to read the Bee Prepared post 
that tells you all about this sew along:)

We used Vintage Happy 2 Fabric...

And my new Sew Simple Shapes

To make the 
Vintage Housewife Quilt
74" x 82"

The following are the blocks that
 go in the quilt...
Click on each title of block
 to go to the tutorial for that week:)


All of the tutorials will remain 
here on my blog 
so no worries if you are behind
 or you haven't even started yet:)

This week is all about 
showing you my finished quilt.
I hung it on my studio wall and took
 SEVERAL photos of each section
 that are close up and personal:)

I did this so that you can see the 
beautiful quilting that my friend 
and quilter Juli Stubbs did!
She is just so amazing:)

If you have never put ric-rac 
in a binding before...
or if you want to know exactly 
how I do my binding...
for my step by step tutorial
 that I did several years back.
I have been doing this same method
 for years and it's my favorite:)

I hope my photos will help you
 when it comes time to quilt your own Vintage Housewife Quilt....
or any of my other applique quilts as well!

I sewed all of my buttons on
 beforehand and Juli went around them.

When you decide to put your buttons on
 is completely up to you
 and/or your quilter:)

I can't remember if I showed you 
this photo from quilt market 
when my Vintage Happy 2 fabric 
projects were on display in the
 Riley Blake Designs booth.
I know that I showed it on my

That's where I usually post 
my day to day happenings!!

I have had so much fun sewing with my 
Vintage Happy 2 fabric 
and the fun continues
 because my new book 
is just now hot off the press!
Click Here to purchase:)

The book is spiral bound 
just like my others and inside
 is the quilt...
a table/bed runner and three pillows.

The sew along will start in
 August and go for 8 weeks.

I will be doing a blog post 
 with all of the info about the sew along...
 such as fabric requirements and schedule.

Here are a few photos from the book...
I hope you love them!!

Thanks you sew much from the 
bottom of my heart for sewing vintage
 with me and celebrating 
the vintage housewife.

I hope you will continue sewing vintage 
with me to celebrate
 the quilters cottage!

to watch the book trailer video ...
it's really fun!

I'll be back soon with a few blocks
 that I made using the "bonus"
 Sew Simple Shapes that were included
 in the set and were not used in the
 Vintage Housewife Quilt:)
We will chat more then!
