Vintage Granny


Here's the finished quilt we promised. Granny squares quilt top: Check.

Stippling this was a beast. But worth all the grumbling. Because, drumroll please, the quilt got a vintage crinkle:


One of the things people forget to tell you is that twin size quilts are impossible to take pictures of. Machine quilting? No problem. A picture? Heck no. Here's most of the quilt, which measures a hearty 61" x 78":

-You can find this quilt for sale on Etsy-

The binding is a fun granny smith apple (??) green. Get it? Yeah, we're trying too hard.

Anyhoo, the binding was a nice way to finish off this little lady.

Goodbye vintage. Hello modern:

Gotta run ;)

Since we're in the in progress mode you get a stack of fabrics. Yeah, yeah. We get it. Where are the quilts? Cominnnggg. 

The ladies at the fabric store loved us when they saw our cart. Until we realized we left the coupons, and only bought what we absolutely had to.

Our next order of business? Find our missing sewing machine screw. Easy peasy. Or so we thought... Looks like we'll have to track one down. Groan.

Popping In

Just wanted to stop in and show you a quick picture of a fall quilt that is cut, and awaiting further TLC. Don't be too surprised if it sits all week in this condition. Don't know what's worse... a pile of fabric waiting to be sewn...or a pile of fabric waiting to be sewn? ;)

Mini Hourglass

Diggin’ through our fabric stash one day, we came across a cute stack of fabric scraps that were all about 5” wide.  Thumbing around for an idea, we came across our hourglass quilt again, and we quickly decided that one hourglass quilt was not enough. So we made hourglass quilt #2. (Side note: aren't we better photographers than the last pictures we took of our first hourglass? Yiko! excuse the grammar, but what were we thinking?)

Errrrm. Where were we? Oh yes, the second hourglass quilt.

The blocks are teeny tiny. They measure 4” (un)finished and  3.5” when sewn together. Little blocks + little quilt = a little bit of heaven. Not joking. 

Here's the whole quilt. Careful....a big dose might just put you over the top :)

We finished this quilt at 10:30ish at night (sound familiar?) and quickly washed it. Bubbly doesn't even begin to describe this quilt.

Etsy. Etsy. Etsy. Come visit our shop and you can buy this precious.

And to prove to all you anti-fall people out there. It is fall:

See? What did we tell you :)
