I just spent a fabulous weekend with my sisters and came home with some awesome vintage blocks, fabrics and quilt tops! We shopped Galena, IL, but these great items came from my sister’s closet.
On my design wall is four of nineteen embroidered blocks. My sister has a quilt finished by her mother in law with the same blocks. That quilt is completed with wide solid sashing and is hand quilted. It’s pretty awesome! I’m not sure how to finish this. Nineteen is an odd number for setting so I’ll need to adjust that.
The blocks have blue lines which I believe are for quilting designs. Does anyone know if they will wash out?
I’d love any fabric suggestions for finishing it.
One thing I know for sure, I will be machine quilting it on my new APQS Freedom!
Last week, I made the decision to trade my 2004 APQS Millennium for a 2012 APQS Freedom with Quilt Glide. Along with my Bliss Drive System, I have a sweet new ride! APQS has great technicians and Jim was here to switch my machines yesterday, and today I’m back in business quilting!!
I’m pretty excited and will offer more reviews as I use it.

According to an antique shop in Galena, the definition of vintage is anything 20 years old! What do you think of that?
Thanks for looking!
