Vintage flower quilt
I need to come up with a name for this quilt soon because "Vintage Flowers" isn't interesting at all. Maybe Virginia's Vintage Creeper.
Virginia because I bought the blocks at the Virginia Quilt Museum
Vintage, well, that's obvious
Creeper, because someone else's UFO crept onto my own UFO list and Virginia Creeper is a real plant, although not a flowering one.
What do you think? Would that be a good name? Any other ideas?
Regardless of the name, the project is front and center for me right now. It's taking a lot of work to get it far enough along that it can easily be a travel or TV project.
Yesterday I hung out with my friend, Anne, and worked on preparing flower centers.
While at her house I also experimented with a few layouts for the border. The top one is my original plan but I don't think I care for the 3-petal buds. I am leaning toward the middle one and definitely like the 5-petal buds better.
Last night after I got home I started basting together some 5-petal sets.
This is going to be my mail project for the weekend. I'm going to give myself the Monday holiday with everyone else so I'll see you back here Tuesday.

Yes, Vicki, I like the center border arrangement the best, too.

Middle one definitely and Virginia's Vintage Creeper.

I am not fond of that name because i am as allergic to Virginia Creeper as I am to poison ivy.

How about "Long ago,... . "I prefer the middle border the best.

I'm breaking with the crowd, I like the bottom one best. Beefed up petals are making a real difference. I like the name because it has meaning for you.

I love the name, especially because Virginia Creepers don't flower.....this quilt won't flower if it hadn't creeped on to your quilt list. I like option #3 as it seems to flow with the petals alternating up and down :)
