Vintage Quilt Revival

Week 6 – #vintagequiltrevival Block Along

February 25, 2014

So I’m looking at the folks who are linking up and I think that last week was the most linked!!! Wo0T! W0oT!!! I’m hoping ya’ll are mastering foundation paper piecing. I’m planning to do another How to: Youtube video on how I foundation paper piece soon.

I finally started to cut out Week 1 in my beloved Chicopee fabrics.  I was thinking of making double the blocks and at the end I would have 40 blocks. . . then I thought I should just make a queen for my bed. . . but I would need 72 blocks.  Holy freak!!! That’s a lot of blocks right but then it would be one epic sampler quilt.  The plan is to make 40 and then make great sashing blocks.


We’re on week 6 of the #vintagequiltrevival  ~ woohoo!!! This week we’re tackling the Mayflower and the Crosspatch block. Both blocks are foundation paper pieced.

The Mayflower is probably the easiest to put together. seriously!

The Crosspatch block was a little more complicated but not really just more pieces to sew.

The winner of super awesome fabric bundle from Bunny Designs is Mrs. Sarah with her purple Red Cross block. She’s doing all her blocks in a different shades of Purples – with a warm background. “Cool on the top and warm on the bottom.”



  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:

    Sukie, I’m loving your blocks! I meant to do them all, but then changed direction and am making a whole quilt of the window pane block! So fun! Thanks for hosting. Oh, and last year I did my Sugar Blocks in Chicopee. It’s so perfect for sampler blocks. 🙂

    I tried experimenting with the Mayflower block and it went wrong. Do let me know if you want me to remove it from the linky. I also tried a diamond panes quilt top. Let me know if I can link it.
    Thanks a lot for the Quilt along. i have completed 2 quilt tops already using blocks from the book. And planning to do some more…
