What else can you make with the Vintage Shirting & Dress Prints collection?
Here's a little inspiration: Barb Eikmeier designed these bonus projects to accompany the Vintage Sampler BOM quilt. These patterns will be available from shops participating in the BOM program.
Featherweight sewing coverBarb says: I got my first featherweight about six months ago and have realized how much love quilters have for them. After I decided to design a sewing machine cover, I then narrowed it to a featherweight cover. The feathered wreath motif comes from a quilting stencil. The pattern also includes a separate bag for the foot, made from the same quilted fabric as the cover.
American Flag (44" x 31")Barb says: With all the U.S. ties to this fabric line--the fabric being printed in the U.S., the history of the fabrics, and the colors--a flag seemed like a good choice. I wanted to do a realistic-looking flab, but that would have required a lot of really little stars. Instead, there are sixteen stars on my flag, which means absolutely nothing except that it comes out to a square. That's the fun of folk art designs! The stars will come with three different sets of instructions--applique, English paper piecing, and hand piecing with set-in seams.
Table runner (12" x 58")Barb says: People seem to like table runners because they are fast to make and great decor for homes. I liked how the black and the blue looked together. Lots of flying geese to make!
