#vintagequiltrevival Wrap Up!!!


Vintage Quilt Revival Block Along


I’ve been working feverishly to finish the top and the back of the quilt and I’m really happy with it. I followed the general guidelines on finishing the top from the book:

Instead of solid corner stone blocks, I did 3.5 x 3.5 (unfinished) hour glasses using Mrs Red Pepper’s tutorial. I just made it a randon hour glass:

I sashed each block in RK Quilters Linen.

It’s at the longarm quilter and I can’t wait to see what she does with it:

Week 10 #vintagequiltrevival Block Along

(cue the Final Countdown song) 

We are in the final week of the #vintagequiltrevival Block along!!!!


I’ve been working feverishly on finishing the top and the backing. I’m sending it to the quilter this week with another quilt.  Not a lot of link ups last week. . . are ya’ll okay?  Was it the lack of foundation paper piecing?  Don’t worry ~ we’re tackling that for the last week of the block along.  Also – there’s going to be a wrap up week too for everyone to post their quilt tops and hopefully y’all can see everyone’s tops.

I also redid the Dakota Star too. . . . I’ll update the blog post with my tips.

For the final week we’re working on two really great looking stars.

The first one is the Exploding Star on page 104 of the book. I know I’ve done a handful of blocks with blue and yellow but not one that’s just pink and blue. So I thought I’d make this one in those colors. I really should buy more of the center fabric, it’s by Bonnie & Camille Scrumptious Bias Stripe Cream.

The last block is the Geometric Star on page 112. Again, I choose blue and yellow. . . I don’t know what I have against pink. But I still love how this one turned out too!!!

The winner of last week’s prize is Mrs. Annacousin – she’s been doing her blocks in one of my favorite lines, Chicopee.



  1. Link up your block(s) (this means you have either blog about it or uploaded to the flickr group). Put your link below!
  2. You can only share once – if you’ve made both blocks, THAT’S GREAT!!!! If you have only made one block, that’s okay. The goal is to keep us motivate – this isn’t a race!
  3. A winner will be drawn on the Monday before Tuesday’s post.
  4. The winner will be rewarded with an awesome fabric bundle from the sponsor that week.
  5. The winner has a Pay It Forward prize as well!! That’s right, I want you to share the wealth if you win – meaning that you have a chance to give the book away to a friend or family member!!! Just get me the addy and I’ll ship them a book.
  6. No multiple winners – if you’ve won once then that’s that.

This week’s sponsors are: Me! That’s right. . . I’ll pull a bundle of fat quarters depending on what you need in your stash and mail it over. If you want something made like a pillow or a mini quilt I can do that too! It’s the last week. . . .I’ll see about prize pack for quilt tops and see what I can pull together for that too.
