Tuesday's This and That: July 26, 2022

 Happy Tuesday!

I think I am going to name Sue our roving reporter.  She always sends me the most interesting things!  So to start us off... how about a talk about scrap quilts?

Sue sent this wonderful video about scrap quilts!
Yes, I prefer the term "humble" instead of scrap!


How about some free quilt patterns?
Art Gallery Fabrics has a free pattern page here!


A while ago, many of us were sending blocks to Claudia Pfeil for quilts for Ukrainian relief.  Want to see what happened to them?  Sue sent a wonderful link to photos of the quilts.  As Sue said,  "It's inspiring!"  Check it out here.  


Weird Musing:  An item (like a quilt) is considered an antique if it is 100 years old.  

A vintage item is at least 20 years old (according to most websites).  I have also heard a quilt needs to be 30 or 40 years old to be considered vintage.

Retro is also a term thrown around these days.  It means it's old (but not vintage or antique) and probably out of style which may make it hip. 

In 8 years, quilts from the 1930s will officially be antique.

Quilts from 2002, 1992 and/or 1982 are considered vintage ???  That freaks me out.  I'm off to sew...

Have a safe and happy day!

  1. The picture of the toy sewing machine makes me sweat! They would make me so frustrated. Never worked well. Just did chain stitch. I was about 9 yrs old when I declared they should all be thrown in the ocean and started using my mother's Kenmore. Almost 70 yrs later and I still haven't recoverd.
