Grandmother’s Curtains
by Star and Sophia Prim of Huntsville, Utah 

A combination of vintage, recycled and new cotton fabrics, wool felt, beads, hand
applique, machine applique, hand-stitching, machine quilting.

When my daughter was three and money was tight, I made her a simple dress out
of some old vintage curtains. She loved it, and I loved seeing her in it, knowing that
it cost nothing and I had given new life to something old. Looking out the window, you can see a little
girl wearing her new spring dress made from the same fabric as grandma’s curtains.

 


 

 

My New Sues
by Kathy Guardia of Grottoes, Virginia

Vintage feedsack fabric, my own handdyed fabrics with some commercial fabric –
hand applique turned and raw edge – hand embroidery; machine quilted

20 years ago I found this treasure in the bottom of a cardboard box full of fabric purchased at an estate sale in Florida. A dingy plastic bag with one completed Sunbonnet Sue sewn on a stained dishtowel and about a dozen Sues cut out of vintage feed sack fabrics never finished. So I introduced the Vintage Sues to my hand dyed fabrics and a few commercial pieces to come up with My New Sues.

 

 

 


Pink Basket 2010 
by Mark Lipinski of Califon, New Jersey

Vintage hand pieced basket block, ribbon and floss embellishment, completed with new
fabrics.

I found this vintage, hand-pieced, 1930’s pink basket block for $6 at an antique shop, The Rusty
Rooster, during a teaching/lecture engagement for The Washington Stars Quilt Guild in Olympia,
Washington in May 2010. Scheduled to lead a quilting retreat at the Thunder Bay Resort in Hillman,
Michigan in June, I brought the block with me and with some support from my fellow retreaters (and in
traditional quilt-making style), we managed to design and quilt this new block from the old.
