Vintage Quilting

I have not been super sewing-active the past few months, mostly because I have been very tired and pregnant! However there is one project that I’ve been working on which I thought appropriate to share here with you. :) It is a nursery rhyme quilt for our new addition (who is due any time now!). Today I pieced together the quilt top!

The vintage embroidery patterns are available as a free download from patternbee.com. You probably already know this, but they have a bunch of adorable free vintage embroidery patterns for download. :)

All of the fabric used in this quilt was either thrifted or auctioned–I don’t think I spent more than $3 on the supplies.  Gotta love that, especially when you are broke like I am!  The embroidered squares are cut from an old cotton bed sheet.

You can see more pictures at my blog!

My name is Bessie, and I am a seamstress and vintage fashion enthusiast. My mother taught me to sew when I was a wee little girl, and I have been hooked ever since. I began using vintage patterns back in 04' or 05' when I stumbled across a box full of vintage patterns for $5. Now vintage patterns are all that I use. :) I teach piano and sewing lessons and run my own Etsy shop, Bessie Miller Vintage, through which I sell vintage sewing patterns, vintage clothing, and other vintage awesomeness that I find here and there.
