Vintage Ornaments Update

My Vintage Ornaments blocks are now sewn into a quilt top!

Happy, happy, happy!

It is cold and damp outside, so no photos taken outdoors, but I did my best to show the top to you.

I shared where to find the pattern in this post.

I have updated my Focus list.  For myself, and for those holding me accountable, I’ve posted the list here.

Rather than work on UFO’s, or current projects, I have started a new project. 

I know…there are some of you who finish a project before beginning a new one, but I am not you (sometimes I wish I were)!

Back in 2017, I came across the Vintage Ornaments Quilt by Cherry Guidry.  For one reason, or another, I didn’t do the quilt along, but I had saved the information.  The desire to make this quilt never left, so I decided it is now or never.  One simply has to make the time to do whatever it is that one wants to do, or it won’t get done.

Making the blocks has been an easy and enjoyable experience.  Squaring them up will be my next task.

I machine appliqued with a small buttonhole stitch using Wonderfil’s shiny rayon and metallic threads.

I may have used Superior’s Bottom Line in the bobbin, but I am not positive.  I used a bobbin that had been wound for a long time, and it wasn’t with the spool that I had wound it with.  Whatever it was, it worked well.
