Vintage Valentine

The postman has just been and delivered my fabric order from the US for this amazing quilt - Vintage Valentine by Vera Mosquera of the Vintage Spool, much better pictures on Vera's website HERE!
I have had the pattern for several years, and although I found some fabrics for the applique, I never had enough variety for the whole quilt until now. All the new fabrics are from Shabby Fabrics in the US, Jennifer is so lovely to deal with! Want to see what I bought?
The last piece of this beautiful floral from the 'Mary Rose' collection by Quilt Gate for the Border
Some luscious creams for the backgrounds from Quilting Treasures
Pinks/Reds from French General and Lecien
A couple of Tans from Lecien and a lovely stripe from Blackbird designs

I spent a happy hour in my sewing room pulling all the rest of the fabrics I have been collecting, mostly from Lecien, French General and Robin Pandolph.
Tans and Greens
Pale Pinks
Dark Pinks

I plan to start this in February along with some of the girls from my Applique Yahoo Group,  but for now the new fabrics are in the wash and then I will enjoy looking at them for the next few weeks. If anyone would like to join us then you would be very welcome! Details HERE


  1. What a beautiful array of fabrics and when combined will make a wonderful quilt to treasure.

  2. This is a real beauty, isn't it (I have it as a WIP). Love the fabric you chose!

    Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  3. Shabby Fabrics are my favourite shop. I have six blocks finished but its going to be some time before I resume the quilt, probably when Ray goes on his sea voyage next summer.

  4. those lovely fabrics will look perfect in that quilt. I saw that pattern several years ago and thought to order it but never did. You will need to post photos as you work it.

  5. Oh my goodness, this quilt will be beautiful! The colors and fabrics are perfect.
