Simple Vintage Sheet 9 Patch and a Bee Vintage Round Up

Although I haven't been in Bee Vintage since the beginning, I've had a lot of fun with it.  I've learned some new blocks . . . some more challenging than others.  It was kind of sweet to discover that my last month (July - woohoo!  I'm done early) was going to be a simple 9 patch variation.  Tammie is looking to make the Sweet Menagerie Quilt that was posted up on Moda Bake Shop back in 2009.  I think this is going to be a lovely quilt done in vintage sheets, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product.

I made up 2 blocks for her:

9 Patch - For Tammie
9 Patch #2 - for Tammie

Since this is the last block I'll be making for this group (sniff!), I thought I'd do a little round-up mosaic of all of the blocks I've done for this bee:
1. Starburst Block #2, 2. Starburst Block #1, 3. Mod Mosaic Vintage Sheet Block, 4. Quilter's Grid Block, 5. Let Them Eat Cake - for Jenny, 6. Not available, 7. 9 Patch #1 - For Tammie, 8. 9 Patch #2 - for Tammie

Thanks ladies, for letting me join up with you mid-bee.  I've had lots of fun piecing with you.  :)

And now . . . I'm just waiting on a few more blocks from my month, and I'll get to quiltin'!

These blocks look great! I have practically zero vintage sheets/fabrics in my stash, but I am beginning to love them.

Jacey - Beware . . . they're highly addicting!! The good news though is if you are a thrifter it can be a fairly cheap thing to obsess over. ;) If you score a couple at the goodwill, etc. you could also join up with a few swaps on Flickr or somewhere so you can diversify what you have pretty quickly. There are also loads of Etsy sellers who are selling vintage sheets in fat quarters . . . not the cheapest way, but a pretty simple way to start a stash.
