Day 2: November 14th ~ Henry Glass Jolly Holiday Party

As you can see, our staff and customers have been getting very creative with the Olde America Antiques quilt blocks.  Images for the blocks are derived from vintage postcards or other vintage drawings and printed onto soft cotton sateen fabric into 4” x 6” blocks that are perfect for quilting.  They are sold in sets of four similar prints in each package with hundreds of sets to select from.  We’ve made many small quilts from the pattern included with the block sets (see the Santa quilt at left), but as you can see, you’re only limited by your imagination in what you can do with them!

Below are some samples done by the Vintage Design Group at the  shop. Linda’s looks like we’re looking through the window at the little girl sewing. The second one framed with the quarter square triangle blocks has a border done with the first toile designed by Little Quilts for Henry Glass fabrics. Notice in the model done by Nancy at the bottom, the postcard print she chose matches her antique Singer sewing machine! What a treasure Nancy has!

Yours was one of the first books I bought when I started quilting years ago. Only the best! Yet, I'm having trouble finding key words. I just don't get it.
