Today I’d like to feature Barb David.  I know this quilt is a little difficult to see as it is done with black thread on white fabric.  But I wanted to show you the entire quilt before I gave you some close ups.
I previously blogged about this quilt when Barb brought the blocks she was working to Knotty Girls Stitching Bee.  You can see that post here.  Barb is one active lady, busy making charity quilts, teaching classes, and writing books, among other things.  
  Not only is Barb’s output amazing, but her stitching is amazing as well.  Barb teaches Redwork at the Attic Window Quilt Shop,  I blogged about her recent Redwork quilt here .     Barb also teaches Twilling and has published her second book on how to do the Twilling Stitch. The book is filled with clearly written instructions and patterns.  I blogged about it here.  There is also a link to Barb's book site on my sidebar.  If you haven’t done any Twilling, I would highly recommend it. Warning:  It’s addictive!

This pattern is Vintage Tin by Crabapple hill.  Doesn’t it make you think of long ago times?  For me it brings back fond memories.

Thank you Barb for sharing your awesome talents with us.  

DON'T FORGET:  The Heart of Winter Tour is fast approaching.  Call the Attic Window and make your reservations ASAP as space is limited.  I'm looking forward to making this Tour again as I has such a fantastic time last year. 

ON ANOTHER NOTECrazy Mom Quilts has a tutorial for Running In Circles. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Can you tell me what kind of thread did she use to do the stitched blocks? It's a great quilt!

I know that my husband would love to see me make this quilt. Thanks so much for sharing; it's beautiful!

Sue said...

WOW! and WOW! some more!! That is just gorgeous and I love the blocks. Yes, it reminds me of the good old days :D

Can you tell me how long it took to get this done? This just looks like so much work, but boy, is it beautiful!

I've admired that pattern for some time. I'm planning to make two more Crabapple Hill patterns, Over the Hill and Through the Woods & Dance by the Light of the Moon. My Which Witch's Boot is basted and waiting to be quilted.
