Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a happy holiday season. I love the holidays, but I am eager for life to get back to normal, because it has been anything but for the last 5 months.
I did TERRIBLY on my 100 Day Hustle list, so I am not even going to go there, but I did make progress on one unfinished quilt.
Here is the front of my Vintage Sheet Quilt. The blocks were made by the ladies of the Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee quilt a LONG time ago (right before Emma was born and she is now 19 months old). They used a tutorial by Aneela Hoey from Fat Quarterly and I added the linen and striped sashing once I received all the blocks.
I decided to make the quilt double-sided with a patchwork back. I’ve really been wanting to make a simple patchwork quilt. It’s also is a great way to use up my vintage fat quarters, so they aren’t hiding in storage bins anymore.
It’s all basted and ready to quilt. I just need thread!
In the meantime, I was sucked into the Scrappy Trip Along madness that is happening amongst the quilters of Instagram right now. It actually happened at a perfect time. because my next project was to use this Anna Maria Horner “Little Folks” bundle for a family room quilt:
I hadn’t decided what quilt pattern I wanted to use yet and I am LOVING this scrappy patchwork look!
You can find the tutorial for this quick quilt at Quiltville.com.
The quilt-along is still in full force and there are no due dates, nothing formal. Just a bunch of crazy quilters sharing photos. You can join in on instagram by using the hashtag #scrappytripalong, or on flickr by joining the group “Scrappy Trip Along“. There are already 261 members in just 3 days! A huge thanks for Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics for organizing the flickr group!
