Soooooo.... want to see my new quilt?
eeek, I'm having so much fun! Totally loving these fabrics and the small 6" blocks. Can't get enough of it!
My work is inspired by this beautiful pin:
Unfortunately, the original source has been lost. If you know it, do tell! I found this image via Amber Carillo on Pinterest, and it has been haunting me. So simple, so vintage. The patchwork looks very make-do.
Well, I'm not making-do, since I'm working from stash, but I'm trying to use lots of sweet, feminine prints and low-volume basics to create a soft, vintage feel. I also opted for a slightly more complicated block, which I call the 4-Penny Patch (I'm sure it already has some other name, but I like this one). I think it looks so sweet!
More than ever before I really, really want a design wall right now. In fact, I think I'm going to take down some art in the living room and tack up some batting to make a temporary wall. Husband and I have plans for making a real wall in my sewing area, but perhaps tacking up something temporary will cause those plans to actually happen? You know how that can work.
Or, at any rate, it will help me lay out Vintage Tangerine! Will report back with progress soon!
