Quilt With Us

Vintage Stitchers met at Barbara's.

 

 

Carol was working on a charity quilt. She's trying to use up her '30s reproduction fabrics. Still. I have the same problem. I just found another box of these fun fabrics while working on cleaning up my fiber studio. I think I've figured out why they're called "reproduction" fabrics. 

 

Brenda show us this fun top:

 

Marilyn has had her "Goodnight Irene" quilt top quilted.

Here's a closeup of the quilting.

Barbara has this fun quilt finished.

Carol says she's disappointed in how this quilt looks, but I like it. 

I worked on quilting my Delectable Pathways quilt. It will get done someday.

In knitting news, all the doll clothes are off the needles and I'm back to my "So-not-my-palette Cardigan." The second sleeve is coming along.

DH was too lazy to make me a fire, but he was willing to turn on the electric heater.

 

Friday was a nice day, so we took the pups hiking above Gorgoza Park, where there is already snow on the ground, as they have been making snow every night for the tubing park.

I think Dusty covered three times the distance of nearly two miles. Both pups slept well after we got back.

 

Speaking of sleeping well, here are two of the grandkids and our grandpup sleeping in the car during a family vacation.

 

 

What's on my needles: The “So-not-my-palette Cardigan” second sleeve is coming along. 

What's on my Featherweight: Done for now. I ordered some poodle PJs for Hannah, so I won't have to make any. I'm working on my fiber studio, trying to get it cleaned up. so I can sew in there.

What's on my wheel: Still put away for now.

What's on my iPad/iPhone: Still listening to music for Park City Singers. Davenport House by Marie Silk is in my Kindle app on my iPad. I still haven't read enough of it yet to know how good it is.

What's in my wine glass: Crane Lake Malbec, one of our regulars.

What's my tip of the week: If you want to make all your fat quarters and other small fabric pieces the same size, cut a piece of shirt cardboard (or cereal box) to the size you want. Fold the fabric to fit, leaving at least one end open, so you can slide the cardboard out and reuse it. I made mine to fit my cabinets.

Stunning quilts.  You ladies have been very busy. I always enjoy the dogs and the two boys are adorable.

Jodi, everything Marilyn makes is colorful! I'm thinking of making the Good Night, Irene quilt myself, maybe after Christmas. It's made with 24 16-patch blocks and 24 blocks made up of four smaller half square-in-a-square blocks. (Maybe they're called something else, but I've forgotten.)Then 14 (I think) blocks made up of two of those smaller blocks. Barb, it's a pantograph, and I think it's called "Peapod" or something like that. If you look at the closeup of the quilting, you can see how the blocks are put together.

What a beautiful display of quilts!  I also like that Goodnight Irene quilt - the quilting on it is outstanding.  Your sweater is going to be gorgeous!

I'm always so impressed with the amount of work the Vintage Stitchers accomplish. Kudos to you all! I think I like the Good Night Irene quilt the best because it is so colorful, but it's hard to decide because each one is a beauty. Thanks for sharing.
