DO YOU LIKE VINTAGE?

There has been so much going on at the Attic Window Quilt Shop that there will probably be more than the two usual postings this week just to get everything in. This is just one of the cute projects we’d like to share with you. Robbie had a pillowcase that belonged to her grandmother. She didn’t want to throw it out so she cut it up and made this cute apron, adding lace and vintage fabric where needed. What a nice way to remember and honor someone so dear to her.
The other apron was an old feed sack block that she had in her UFO pile. She added lace and fabric where needed. How clever. There are also kits available in the Attic Window Quilt Shop of aprons that Robbie has designed. They are not these vintage type ones but they are very cute and would make a lovely hostess gift. Stop in and check them out. This scrapbook was also made by Robbie. She purchased a photo album book then covered it with fabric, glued lace to it and embellished it. She has it filled with vintage lace samples she has collected. What a clever idea.
Since we seem to be doing all things vintage today, here is cute “redwork” embroidery that Cindy did. Interesting use of thread color. Doesn't she do beautiful hand work?
A Gift For You:
Easter is just around the corner so you might want to check out The Purl. She has the cutest Easter Eggs project for you to make.
Until Next Time: Happy Quilting

How delightful it is to run into vintage fabrics and to see how others re-cycle them. I love using vintage fabrics for doll clothing. Little hankies can be used for under drawers, pantaloons or slips. Larger vintage items like pillowcases are good for pinafores. Even less than perfect vintage pieces translate well into clothing for "well loved" dolls.
