My vintage lightweights have attracted me lately. Many of them I have hoarded for some time now without purpose. I find them so cute. This month I decided to MIX the new with the old to create fresh, yet traditional patchwork.
Or, perhaps under a bowl of Trick-or-Treat candy.
A fun Fall set for my shop, right?
Living in a hot climate, I appreciate quilts made with lightweight fabric!
And light batting too! Prior to desert life, I wondered who would bother making a quilt without ANY batting? Just nutty, right? My current sofa quilt has no batting. I love all the old 'yucky' fabrics in it, and it is backed with a sheet and tied. Ha! I did not make it, but I just might make an empty sandwich of my own someday. Probably won't back it with a sheet, but who's to say...
I do LOVE to use vintage fabrics, however I am quite particular about the projects for which they are suited. Who wants to spend time on intricate patchwork for a quilt that will not last well?
I hope you enjoyed my Patchwork MIX! Check out Le Challenge Linkup, and consider making something for the November X-Challenge!
