Let’s Make a Vintage Linens Quilt Together; A Free FB Class!

Let’s start 2021 with a free quilt class! I’ve designed an original quilt pattern, made the quilt top and taken lots of pictures in the hopes of creating a class to brighten your 2021.

Titled “Boehm House Vintage”, this pattern measures approx. 54×54. Not interested in the sashings and cornerstones? Here’s a picture of what your 48×48 quilt top would look like when all the blocks are sewn together:

Why the name? The 1914 Boehm House, (click on the name) a fabulous 3 story Victorian is my absolute favorite Retreat Venue and I’m fortunate enough to call the owners Anita and Rick Todd friends. It was because of Anita’s encouragement that we scheduled 2 Vintage Linens Retreats in 2020. The March event was so much fun but sadly the July went the way of Covid and had to be cancelled. We’ve got March 2021 on the calendar but only time will tell if it’s a go. Not sure how to pronounce Boehm? Think: baim, long a, silent i.

If you jump over to the Facebook page: 1914 Boehm House Vintage Linens Classes you’ll find several of my posts about this free class. It’s here that you can sign up for the class by joining the FB group. All you’ll need to do is join the group and make a pinky swear not to share the quilt pattern. Take some time to read through my November posts in this FB group to gather info about the class that will officially begin January, 2021.

One of the best steps in vintage linens quilting is selecting the pieces.

The fabric collection? A jelly roll purchased at a Tuesday Morning store several years ago.

The jelly roll had 2 strips of each fabric. By sewing them together I’m able to cut my larger quilt block pieces. Yes there are unusual seams here and there but because the vintage linens are the eye candy I’m not at all concerned. It’s kind of a “make do” moment because the fabrics work so well with the linens.

See what I mean…if I hadn’t told you, you might not have noticed the seams in the star points! And the background fabric, wish I had bolts of it! I pulled it from my stash, having no idea where or when I purchased it and no info on the selvage for reference I’m just glad I have several yards to work with! The lacy look of the light ivory tone-on-tone works so well with the linens.

Are you game? Are you looking for a January project? Hope you’ll join me!

Happy Thanksgiving and blessings,

Rhonda

  4. I am looking forward to this. I will be one of those newbies. I have lots of doilies tucked away. This is exactly what I needed to get started. I have one question so far. I need to get a jelly roll. Do I pick out the colors of the jelly roll or get out my doilies and figure those out and then get the jelly roll. Because I know how supportive and what a great teacher you are I have a little bit more confidence to start. I will probably and need to take many deep breaths. THANK YOU so much for doing this.

    1. Hi Robbie, good morning! Glad you feel comfortable tackling this centage linens Quilt! I just wanted to make sure that you know that you do not need to use a jelly roll if you don’t want to, are used one because I liked the colors and prints of the fabrics in the role. You can use whatever quilting fabric you want to!!
