Fresh Vintage is here again!



I'm popping out of my little hole [sounds kinda like GroundHog day, doesn't it?] to let you know that our latest Fresh Vintage issue has started to ship out! Finally. Its a great issue chalk full of fun stuff. All auto shipments have gone out already [along with your free pattern!] so expect yours anytime. 

The main project is such a great, simple quilt and although I know my friend Camille makes fun of me every time I say that something is simple, this really is! All you need is 2 charm packs of your favorite collection [hint, hint: Breakfast at Tiffany's has just hit the stores and is available everywhere right not!], some cream background and an alternate fabric…. That's it! Now how can you go wrong I ask you?

And if that doesn't suit your fancy, we have added in this fun, quick Halloween Wall Hanging or in our case, a door hanger. AT 18" x 18", you can finish it in an afternoon and have something for the rest of the fall. Over the last couple of years I have completely fallen in love with silhouette art, in every form. I have jewelry with it, small artwork, I collect vintage pieces of it, love the children's silhouettes, cutouts…. you name it, I love it! I think it is especially appropriate in October as the black silhouette stands out so strongly and makes you think of Halloween and fall decorating. Don't you think?

If you are local and joining us for PIQF next week, we have kitting this little guy up so you can come and get your own exactly like this one. Oh, we also have October Ties kitted, along with a hundred other things. But that's for another post that I will get done this weekend. 

If you want your own copy of this Fresh Vintage #17, go here.

Hope you are all enjoying your fall. I am trying to finish up all of my design deadlines so I can start sharing all the newest lovelies with you all. Stay tuned as I am nearing the finish line!


Talk to you soon.

    Joanna, I love the Halloween wall hanging. Will this be a kit? How can I obtain one soon — I’m in Minnesota. Thanks.

    Oh, I can’t go to PIQF, but I sure want that Halloween kit! Any chance I can purchase one? I wish, I wish, I wish. I would take the tie kit too. I hope, I hope, I hope!

    Wonderful ! I will receive it with my first Fig Tree club shipment. Just a few days waiting…

    I can hardly wait to get my issue! I have been lamenting over how I don’t like traditional fall colors in my pastel kitchen. This is just perfect!!! Thank you so much!

    I hopped right over and ordered the new issue and realized that I never left you a comment! Love October Ties and the Halloween wall hanging is beautiful! Using a silhouette is such a brilliant idea! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity. 🙂

    Just got my Fresh Vintage and free pattern today!
    My best friend Lori won a package from your contest!
    Oh my gosh, she is so excited, and can hardly wait to receive the gift in the mail. She is a beginner to sewing and quilting! She is working on the binding now on her first quilt!
    Thanks for the fun!
