Vintage Quilt Progress

I'm excited to share some progress on my Vintage quilt! Six of the 12 blocks are completed, and I'm really liking the way it's looking.
Blocks all laid out on my design... floor. :)
Thanks for all of the encouragement when I mentioned I wasn't sure that I would like the solids. It's been fun so far.

 Two blocks are finished in Kona Caribbean...

 ...two in Kona Aqua....

 ...and two in Kona Pool.

My favorite color keeps changing to whichever block I just finished. :)

Oh - and I recently joined Instagram! I'd love for you to join me over there, or subscribe to Homemade Engineer with Bloglovin' or Feedly (or see the other options on the sidebar). Thanks for stopping by!

Linking up at WIP Wednesday, Let's Bee SocialNeedle & Thread Thursday, and Pretty Bobbins.

  3. I love Kona Solids... And this design! It's awesome! Reminds me of my grandmother's quilts. She made a lot of bricked quilts. Looks fabulous!

    1. Yes, Mom - definitely. I've been using Best Press with this & I think that helps a ton.
