I must be on a ROLL!
I pulled out another vintage quilt top this weekend
that needed a little more work.
Some of the squares were already pieced together but...
it was missing 4 of the fan blocks.
I sat down and quickly drafted a paper pieced fan.
Thankfully I had a bit of yellow, green and scraps that kind of matched.
I will attempt to add a muslin border
to make this wide enough for a twin size
Maybe I'll even get some quilting stitches in!!!
I really don't know WHY I feel the need to finish these tops
that end up in my lap!
Their voices have certainly been LOUD the last couple of weeks!
They are shouting JUST a bit louder than the BINS of SCRAPS
that want to be QUILTS!!!
Add a link and let us know what YOU'RE making this week!
It's time for a MONDAY MAKING party!
I can see why you want to save this quilt top -- it's a beauty. It will be even more wonderful with quilting in all that white space!! SallyReplyDelete
I LOVE that you are finishing vintage quilts! I wonder how many there are languishing in someone's sewing room because they have no idea what to do with it. This one is gorgeous! So glad you had some fabric that matches. Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it!ReplyDelete
Oh Beth, I am sure you will not only save it but give it a new life. It is beautiful.ReplyDelete
Glad you paid attention to this one's shouts, it's a beauty.ReplyDelete
I just love that. I wondered if you made the top like they used to but it is older. It's so pretty, makes me want to make one just like it.ReplyDelete
OOH, I love that New York Beauty top you're working on! I thought you were making a reproduction at first, and I wanted to ask where you got that perfect shade of vintage green! :-) I think it's great that you're finishing up old tops that were abandoned by their makers. They are like embryos frozen in time, asking to be born.ReplyDelete
I like the colors in this one, Beth. That yellow really pops. Nice job.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful top, and kiddos for a great jubReplyDelete
The fans are so pretty, Beth. Where do you get the vintage tops that you work on?ReplyDelete
I love the greens in this one!!ReplyDelete
The is an awesome quilt. I love the pattern. I've been working on old blocks for a friend but haven't made any progress in the last few months. I'll need to get back to it in a few more weeks.ReplyDelete
