If you guys have followed along on my quilty adventures over the years, then you know how much I love vintage quilts and how many of my patterns are inspired by my vintage quilt treasures or quilts that I have just glimpsed at flea markets or antique shops.
There is just something about them. I know I say that a lot but there really is almost a palpable feeling you get from certain quilts… at least there is for me.
So when I glimpsed this vintage cross with a super soft faded blue sashing, red crosses and tiny little prints in the backgrounds, this quilt was immediately born in my head.
For those of you who follow along in our Facebook Group, we will be sewing along together there and Susan has worked up a nice little schedule for us to keep us on track, motivated and working together.
If you prefer to work on your own, grab a pattern in the shop, HERE and quilt to your hearts content. This is one of those super simple projects that comes together quickly and with a lot of satisfaction.
Sometimes the most simple of blocks are truly the best. It allows your eye time to look around at everything and to settle on the places that it likes best.
A FEW TIPS AND HINTS
I am working along on this one slowly over the next few weeks so have no finished quilt top to show you guys just yet.
We will be back next week with more photos and more blocks to share… hope you will sew along with us!
