Vintage Embroidery Quilt WIP

 I haven't been getting much quilt making done recently, but with all the children back at school today I pulled out a couple of my WIPs that have been seriously neglected over the last month.

You might remember my vintage embroideries quilt. I got my second star sewn up and the third one all ready to sew.

This one won't need too much more effort to get the top finished, I'm just planning on it having the three stars arranged in a plain background, maybe something like this:

And the yang to the pink, embroidered yin...

Excuse the pen marks still visible!

... I got another silhouette done for my Breakdance quilt!
I'm doing lots of linking up today again -  linky parties at Sew Fresh Quilts,  Freshly PiecedFreemotion by the River and tomorrow at My Quilt Infatuation.



  1. I love vintage embroidery and stars- beautiful! However, your break dancing star is the cutest! :)

  2. Love it! That pose is just says it all. Can'T wait to see this quilt!

  3. Wow! Those stars are sure sweet.... Especially with the embroidery. Break dancing quilt? Can't wait to see more!

  4. I always love stars! These are gorgeous. I am still working on my WIP from last wednesday but getting a vicarious craft hit from other people's work! so thank you :)

  5. Beautiful star and the break dancing is so neat!! Thanks for sharing.

  7. I really like your embroidered stars. What a neat idea.

  8. oh wow! I always see those beautiful embroidered pieces in antique shops and other places. What a wonderful way to use them!

    Thanks so much for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!
