Vintage Stitches Quilt

  It's always a fun day when I get to share some secret sewing!! I was thrilled when my good friends at Moda Fabrics asked if I would make the Vintage Stitching Quilt by Heather Briggs featuring her new Flower Girls Fabrics!!! And of course, I said yes, I mean, how can you not want to stitch up these vintage roses, so fun!!!!  

I had oh so much fun making this quilt!!!   I just loved how seemed like I was cross stitching a quilt :)  And all of this is basic piecing, but as you can see, it is a lot of little tiny pieces!!!  I found it super helpful to have my Alphabitties for labeling!!   And stacking up the two separate blocks and chain stitching each row of all the left blocks and then each row in all the right blocks was a huge time saver. 

This is one of those quilts where keeping organized makes all the difference!!   And it turns out just so pretty!!!   And of course, the scalloped corners just adds to the Vintage look of the whole thing ;)  I just love how soft and delicate this quilt is, from the design, to the colors, to the prints, everything is just vintage goodness!!!      It finishes at 60" x 78" so it is a great size to have as a throw on a couch or hang on a wall.  

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided on all over Curly Q.   I love how it just adds so many curves to all of the straight piecing.   And it adds so much soft texture to this already, super soft quilt.   Just love it!!  

And now this Vintage Stitching quilt is off visiting lots of quilt shops hopefully bringing some Vintage goodness wherever it travels :)  So I will have to wait for it to arrive back home, (I think this would make the prettiest wedding quilt!!)  But you don't have to wait!!! Flower Girl Fabrics  are shipping now and Fat Quarter Shop has a Vintage Stitching Quilt Kit available !!  (and guess who's quilt that is in the picture, I know I'm silly, but it just makes me smile ;)  Now you can whip up your own Vintage Stitches Quilt  too!!!   

I know you are just going to have so much fun making your own ;)   It really is just the touch of spring that so need after all the snow ;)   And it makes such a gorgeous finish that would be a lovely gift or treasured keepsake.  

And that is it for today !!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
