October 2015 is here and I'm over the moon excited about beginning the Virginia Quilt Museum's Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt (SVBAQ) Sew-Along!! If you haven't checked out the details, follow any of the links below to read more about the project.
VA Quilt Museum - Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt of 1858
Aunt Reen's Place
Collector with a Needle
I am currently a member of the VA Quilt Museum and knowing that my small contribution helps keep this historic building going, along with keeping quilting alive; it was well worth the investment. As a member I attended the Homecoming event for this beautiful quilt and met a few members of the family (click here to read about the quilt).
To enjoy a snippet of the event, follow the link below to the local news.
This month we were instructed to prepare three Pineapple blocks. Pineapples are known for hospitality and to let others know they are welcome. What a great block to start this adventure with; I mean everyone is welcome to purchase the pattern from the museum and everyone is welcome to sew along each month to recreate this 1858 quilt! Happy quilting...
Here are my first blocks from this sew along...
I'm doing my quilt in batiks and it will become our new guest room quilt.
Currently, I have collected batiks from:
- Oh Sew Persnickety - Haymarket, VA (The Background Batik)
- Suzzie's Quilt Shop - Manassas, VA
- The Scrappy Apple - Winchester, VA
- Web Fabrics - Purcellville, VA
Until Next Month's Adventure...
