Remember these?

I've been shuffling these around the studio for quite some time.  It's time to do something with them.  Either finish them or store them away in a drawer.
The block pattern is called Nostalgic Pillows By Lynn Wilder.  You can find a link to the pattern on her blog Sew'n in Wild Oaks.  Just scroll down on her blog and look to the left.

   
The little ladies are vintage images found on the internet, then printed to fabric.


Originally I'd planned on making the 9 scrappy blocks.  Now I'm thinking I'd like to finish it as quickly as possible.  You know, UFO Busting!  So the afternoon was spent rummaging through the scrap bins and cutting fabric.


The gingham is the perfect fabric for framing these little cuties.


My favorite is this one with the bright pink gingham.

  1. these are such fun and the gingham looks so good cut on the cross. What a lovely quilt you will have when complete., and a great selection of scraps would love a rummage through that box myself! Wish I could install the printer to my lap top been without a printer since I got this lap top last year, mind you have not worked out how to print on fabric either.

  4. I love how you framed all the little ladies. What technique of printing did you use? I've only printed onto transfer paper then ironed that onto the fabric, but I've seen tutorials using fabric ironed onto freezer paper then run through the printer. I think maybe the ink would show better printing straight onto the fabric.
