Show and Tell, Vintage Design Group

Show and Tell was pretty spectacular at the local Vintage Design Study Group last night. We decided on our project schedule for the next three sessions, so we are pumped :-).

From the latest Bonanomi book:

Debbie F.'s beautiful, beautiful little quilt; this is part of Pam Buda's Prairie Women's Sewing Circle, Journey Two, originally an antique crib quilt shown in Sandi Fox's Small Endearments:



Pattern-in-progress:

Cutwork from Wanda's Beginning Baltimore class:

Nancy P. brought in antique quilts!



This is lovely, not real bright, and notice the kicky blue and red border:

This month's project challenge was to build a quilt using one printed vintage sewing advertising block, picked at random, from Olde America Antiques:

Nancy C. happened to pick a block that matched her grandmother's antique sewing machine!

Beautiful colors, as Janice K. said, reminiscent of Nancy Klop's colorations:

Wow, beautiful prints and setting by Janice K.:

Okay, Ms. Karen, you are a very bad influence on me!!! I went to the website with the vintage pic quilt blocks and OMG! I saw so many I want to order. I have never seen anything quite like it. I especially like the Mark Twain blocks---so Missouri-ish! Can't wait to see your group's finished projects.

Oh, and that Maggie B. project is adorable.

I have seen those advertising blocks somewhere. What a good theme for a little challenge. Your little group sounds like it is very interesting and fun. How good that you found each other.

What a great idea, love them all. That 9-patch is on my to-do list as well. I have always admired it in Sandi Fox's book.
