My little boys are camping with their grandparents for three days.
Love 'em, but I'm so happy to have a break!!! The house is so quiet : )
Today I decided to try a new block. Well it isn't quite new. I've been collecting vintage quilting patterns and this one is from Kansas City Star newspaper, "Rose Dream" from 1930.
I've really been inspired by a new Flickr Group - Low Volume Quilt Along. The idea of using a more subdued palette is very appealing to me right now. I was looking through my patterns and thought this would be the perfect one.
I'm truly in love with this block! I've pulled a stack to make more blocks - I'd like to make an entire quilt.
So.....here is a question for you.
Would you join a Vintage Block Quilt Along hosted by me?
I would pick vintage patterns from my collection and I would provide the pattern and a tutorial. In the case of making this block, I'd share my tips and tricks I learned while doing curved piecing.
I'm thinking at least one block a month, maybe two.
What do you think??
As far as the random stuff, I had a chance to spend some time in the garden. A few years back we planted a few strawberry plants. Now we have a little patch : ) The boys love to pick them.
My latest project for Fat Quarterly is finished. Yay!! These are just the backs of the pillows I made for the next issue. A little teaser : )
