I’m so excited for today’s post! We’re kicking off the Vintage Home Sewing blog tour today – and we’re having a giveaway! But before we dive into the giveaway I want to show you around the book a little more!
Vintage Home Sewing is made up of eight sewing projects that range in time and skill level so there is something for everyone! You can find projects like a simple coaster set all the way up to a throw-size quilt!

The quilt in the book is called the Diamonds and Rings quilt. I wanted to create a quicker version of a wedding ring quilt. This cute quilt uses applique for the “rings” portion and it’s so fun to put together! You can have a lot of fun fussy cutting the diamonds too!
I created two versions of all the projects in the book so you could see them in different colorways. I wanted to give you a couple different ideas for inspiration for each project!
Here’s a more of the fun projects in the book!
I love how the Dresden Pillows look made up in different Riley Blake Linens and Grandale fabrics!
These Vintage Totes are such a fun way to give a vintage embroidery piece that’s been damaged a new life! I made up one version in Vintage Adventure and another in my favorite prints in the Guinevere collection – they are so retro and delicious!!
And as a fun note – the two embroidery pieces I used on the totes were actually on the same embroidered runner – just at different ends! I have no idea why the sweet person who made this originally embroidered one end of her runner in pink and one in yellow but I love her for it!
You know I had to include an embroidery project in the book too! This Adventure Awaits hoop is so fun to stitch up – and it would make a great gift too!
One of my other favorite things about the book is the price! It’s only $9.95 – so you can eight projects for about the price of one quilt pattern!

I’m into nightly handwork lately and the Vintage Embriodered Tote would be a wonderful combination of machine and handwork. The quilt would also be a front runner, you can’t have to many quilts. Especially when there’s always someone that you want to give one to. Your fabric line is beautiful I love the color combination. Congratulations on your book you must be so excited I can’t imagine what this accomplishment means to you, I’d be bouncing off the walls with excitement. Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us. ;-> Toni Anne

I would definitely be making the “Adventure Awaits” project for our friends who sold their home and are traveling non-stop–often in an RV, but sometimes internationally. We’re such homebodies, and it’s so much fun to get postcards from Spain or the National Parks, telling us about their adventures. Right now, circumstances keep us at home, but it is a nice reminder that Adventure Awaits…I might need to make one of those for us, too, to hang on our own wall. :)
