Vintage Quilt Revival Blocks completed!

by Judy Tucker

Here it is, the very last of the paper shredding for my Vintage Quilt Revival sampler quilt!  I finished the last block today.

I put together 4 blocks this week, so I am a week ahead of the Flickr Group, Vintage Quilt Revival Block Along schedule.

Here are the blocks I just finished:

Classic Star and Pinwheel Block

Classic Mosaic Block

Classic Exploding Star Block
(Don't you just love that name.  But it makes me
wonder if there is a Black Hole around here somewhere)!

Classic Geometric Star Block
And here are all the blocks laid out:

The book, Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Blocks,  (see sidebar right), shows the blocks in 3 possible setting.  One is similar to the layout here.  This only makes a lap sized quilt.  With each block taking me 2+ hours to make, I want it to be a more substantial quilt.  And it think the details of each block are better appreciated when they aren't right next to each other.  

Setting the blocks on point is beautiful. However,  my background white came from my stash and I don't have enough to make the setting blocks, nor do I want a quilt with a lot of white.  Too many 4 footed friends in this house to do that!!

The last suggestion is to put sashing between the blocks.  I searched through my stash this morning but it doesn't look like I have anything that will do.  But I did find some lovely fabric for the backing, so it was a well spend morning!

Setting of the blocks to follow at a later date -- when I know what I want to do!
