Good morning! It’s Cindy reporting in from Ohio today. Hey Sandy, give me a call when you have a few minutes and I’ll fill you in on our fun trip!
In our “Vintage Treasure #2” post on May 9, 2019, we shared a photo of a quilt we are finishing for a family friend.
One item on our “to do” list was to draft a pattern of this quilt to share with everyone.
Last week I received the August 2019 edition of American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine in the mail and a similar quilt is one of the featured patterns…it’s call “Tied & True”.
Quilt collector Jody Sanders provides all the “how to’s” for making a vintage triangle quilt, including instructions for hand-tie quilting. Jody adds an even more authentic flare by using a wide border that also serves as a binding.
Jody’s instructions call for cutting out 1,984 triangles from light, medium and dark fabrics for a quilt that measures 78 x 87 inches…similar to the size of ours. Wow!
The triangles for the quilt we’re finishing were cut from cardboard and paper templates long before rotary cutting and die cutting machines.
If you’re thinking about making a one patch triangle quilt, be sure to purchase the August 2019 edition of American Patchwork & Quilting. In addition to Jody’s pattern, you will also find lots of quilt inspiration, tips, new products and patterns.
Jody, thank you for sharing your “Tied & True” pattern, it really is a vintage treasure!
