Vintage Soul and NTT

Welcome to another Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  Today, I get to share a new quilt finish with you, and it is already right at home in my living room, getting lots of use.

Anna Maria Horner fabrics are so rich with color and print, and yet, they have such a lovely vintage vibe, so I've decided to call this one Vintage Soul.  With strips finishing at just two inches wide, many of the larger prints get lost, but I don't care.  I am in love with the way the colors move across the quilt.

I did have some trouble figuring out what to put on the back.  Since I used the last bits of my scrap fabric, I couldn't do my usual backing with leftovers, so I decided on this pretty robin's egg blue floral, with a nice wide strip of Bella Solids Leaf.  It compliments the top nicely, but doesn't take away from it; and this warm, golden crosshatch fabric is a perfect frame.

This finished quilt measures 60" x 72" so it's a perfect snuggle size; just in time for the chilly autumn temperatures.

Before we get to the features from last week's party, I owe you FOUR giveaway winners!  

First up, the winner of the $25 gift certificate from Lady Belle Fabric is comment number 136, Karen.

Now that we have all of the business taken care of, let's take a look, at some of the awesomeness from last week.  Check out this beautiful charity quilt, made by members of the New Hampshire MQG.  

This pink and gray string top by Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework  is so much fun!

and Yanicka Quilts linked up this baby elephant quilt finish.  I love how all of the different gray fabrics add so much dimension!

Okie dokie, friends!  It's time to link up the latest from your sewing space!

1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. All of the awesomeness quilts are lovely. So bright and colorful. I love your Vintage Soul quilt. Those fabrics are also vibrant and fun.

  2. love all the quilts you show - the size quilt the first one is is a really nice size for the couch or over the legs in the winter for extra on the bed I intend to start making more that size and less really big ones as I have a to of big quilts.

  3. Wow, it's gorgeous! I just love, love, love that fabric. As soon as I saw the preview photo, I said to myself ... Anna Maria Horner!

  4. Awwww thank you for the feature :) Love your quilt!!! The colors are just wonderful

  5. Lots of color in your new snuggle quilt. It's perfect weather for that.

  6. I am having difficulty in grabbing your button - any advice?

  7. I love your new quilt! I really like the binding!

  8. It's gorgeous and the name is a perfect fit! You inspire me to cut into my AMH fabrics!

  9. What a great quilt Vintage Soul is! I love AMH fabrics and they just play together so nicely in your quilt!!! Fabulous!!!

  10. I'm never that lucky with scraps. The last scrap quilt I pieced was so ugly and it convinced me my scraps could be put to better use by my husband in the shed.

  11. Seeing your regular width and straight strips next to Cynthia's various width and angles is a nice comparison. I want to use up some strips/scraps so now I need to decide on straight vs angled . . . or maybe one of each. : )

  12. I love how you used up all your leftovers! Thanks for featuring my string quilt. This week I am already posting the finish. I love a quilt that goes together quickly!


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
