Antique Block Challenge 2021-2022

Last year I sent out quite a few antique blocks for our challenge. How's it going? 
May 30, 2022 was set as the deadline and this month has already zipped by so fast! I've seen 2 completed quilts and I just recently got mine basted. 
I know I took a photo of the blocks and now I cannot find them. 
Be sure to show us the "before" block and the after quilt. 


Here are a few that I mailed out.
If you'd like to be a part of the challenge and would like a $5 block, let me know! humblequilts@gmail.com


Here is my block from the 2020 challenge.


Just trying to keep it fresh in your mind!'

Love ya"

Humble Quilts Class or Workshop?


Since I'm training for a half marathon I've had lots of time to let my mind wonder about Humble Quilts and what I want 2022 to look like. 
I want to ask you all what you think about a short class once a month. We could do a small quilt project, learn about antique quilts or reproduction fabric. I think the possibilities are endless.  Please watch the short video and let me know what you think!

Leave me a comment or send me an email at HumbleQuilts@gmail.com for any ideas!

Thank you so much!

Wool Applique

I completed this wool applique last night! Such a pretty little project. 
Not perfect! Handmade and humble by me! lol

I opted to back it in a brushed homespun. 
This is how I found the block in a drawer in my sewing room. I ended up finding a larger tablerunner pattern in a book by Rebekah Smith. 



I brought it with me to Idaho and buttonhole stitched it down . 

Then promptly came home and burned it! Aargh! I removed the stitches and sewed it back onto a new piece of black.

Then finished it with this lovely gold wool.

I put it on Etsy if you'd like to own it!
Thank you for those of you who have purchased finished items and patterns.

The link is HERE.

Have an amazing weekend friends!

Christmas Gifts

 A generous blog reader sent me these Temecula mini quilt postcards! They are adorable! Thank you Annette!

I talked to Katy, blog HERE, as I feel like she knows a lot about the Go! merch and she recommended this set. Wow, I got a really great deal and bought it as a Christmas present for myself. Yes, I've used it quite a bit already!






My sister had this mug made for me and gave it to me when I arrived in Idaho this past weekend. 



I love it so much!


I have 2 quilts for sale. You can see them by clicking on the upper right photo or HERE

Have a great week friends!
