Someone hand pieced, and then hand quilted this double eight point star quilt. And then, decades later, I found it at my favourite local thrift shop. For $40 (*mind blowing*).
All vintage fabrics. I could stare at it for hours.
This is the only thing to do with your scraps, fellow sewing folk.
I made this bunting for our Irish friends who had a baby about a year ago. Soon it will be in the mail to Galway.
I call the fabric combo "Seventies Bedroom"
I didn’t here, but usually I use seam tape for the top of the bunting – makes the project a little easier. This was one of my first forays into applique:)
Siomha (pronounced SHEE-va). Yeah it is.
I couldn't resist taking pictures of it intermingled with my laundry art.
There is a thrift shop in a town near our house and it has hands down, the greatest vintage fabric scraps and general crafting nik naks. But when I found this mother-load of pre-cut vintage quilting pieces I thought I was on candid camera. And it actually was comical how fast I stuffed these into my basket. How ridiculous are those dresden plates?
for serious - this was $1
I will not tell you where this place is. I will take it to my grave.
