Vintage Patchwork

 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14

Good Monday morning!!! its going to be a crazy week this week but I am looking forward to all the adventures it brings! God is so good! This week  the sweet gals over at Quilt Story have their Fabric Tuesday so I want to play along with them, go check out the amazing gals and what they share!  I also came across a new blog this week, Cooking up quilts, and she has a Main crush Mondays gathering and it looks like fun! you can talk about and share what you have a crush on for that week, my crush this week is this vintage patchwork quilt top I made, loving the strawberries, florals, aquas, reds and polka dots I added in... just grabbed some of my favorite fabrics and started cutting 5" squares :) simple but a classic and I love it. Hoping I baste the backing this week!





Here is my son holding the quilt for me, it was pretty breezy this day....

laughing at this picture! totally cracks me up! Zach is such a good sport  ;)


Been taking on some orders lately too, I have met some of the nicest people with my orders and its been thru word of mouth is why my little business is growing, I mainly sell thru my facebook page Blessings and Blossoms but would love to start having everything go thru my Blessings and Blossoms  etsy shop and build up my sales there.
here are some of my more recent orders, been doing a ton of my cardholders :)

I love turquoise and red together -- it always seems fresh to me. Yet, do I use that combo... for some reason no. Yep, son holding the quilt just wasn't working all that well but nice for a chuckle.

My first time here, thanks to your comment to Leeann. Love your verse for today, a favorite. Your fabrics are so cheerful and homey, lovely quilt and apron. I don't know what the card holders are for, but they sure are cute! Also, I am so glad to see your ASL blogs. I learned signing about 20 years ago while working with hearing impaired young people, and enjoyed the signed singing at a church we attended. We moved and now a deaf woman has moved into my senior apt complex, so I want to brush up and feel so awkward. I will be checking your site from now on. So check mine out also at Paula B Quilts, a newer blogger.

Love your vintage squares! It really looks like summer.

Your son really is a good sport. Hope he at least got a few cookies for his effort.
