These are Fabrics I purchased two years ago waiting for the right PROJECT....
I may make a lot of scrappy quilts,
but that doesn't stop me from LOVING old reproduction prints and style quilts...
I'm happy just making what ever floats my boat!
I dug out a bunch of vintage blocks that I had as well, and after seeing the
QUAKER quilt from 1844 (last post)
I knew just what I wanted to make with them...
A Signature Quilt
with all my blogger friends...
I just rec'd a box of vintage scraps from a pal BETH, (THANK YOU BETH)
and I dug right into them and started playing with
how to make something with my signature on it...
I loved the fancy writing on that old quilt.
Not sure I can pull that off,
but I am going to try...
ABOVE is my first attempt... START by making your signature piece first...
This one I did backwards and now it's all crooked, so I will make another...
The fabrics Ishow what colors I'd like this quilt to be,
so if you want to make a 6.5" block for me,
these are the colors for the quilt...
If you would like to contribute a BLOCK:
1. Any Style 6.5" unfinished BLOCK
with your signature.
I PREFER FUNKY FABRICS,
dig out your Kaffe's
and brights and solids!
does NOT need to be reproduction fabrics,
have fun with it!
2. Include on your block,
3. Any style fabrics, (colors above)
Does not need to be Reproduction fabrics
I like funky fabrics on traditional blocks
Please use a permanent FABRIC INK
with your signature ( Rub a dub sharpies or pigma pens)
so it doesn't fade when washed.
4. contact info click here.
5. no rush...
I will collect these until I have enough for a quilt.
See last post for more on this inspiration.
