My Grandmother's Quilt
There are so many unique, vintage quilt blocks that rarely get made anymore, and we think that's a shame. We started My Grandmother's Quilt as a way to teach and share those vintage blocks. Is Mod more your style? No problem! Switch up your fabrics to give these vintage blocks a modern vibe.
Come join us on a journey of 12 vintage quilt blocks, get ideas on layout and how to quilt it. It's going to be a lot of fun!
How it works
It’s Really Simple!
The world of quilting is constantly changing and is limited only by one's imagination. We want to bring back some of the vintage quilt blocks our grandmothers used to create warm, functional bedding for their loved ones.
The way it works is simple: choose the payment method that works best for you: Monthly or Annually. Then each month you'll receive a set of printable instructions for that month's block, a line drawing that will allow you to decide which fabrics and colors work best in which area of the block, and a link to a helpful video tutorial. Plus you'll have the support of our online community, as well as the ability to reach out to Regina and Elizabeth on Facebook or via email. Come quilt with us; It's going to be a lot of fun!
Flo's Flower Garden is the name of this year's quilt. When Regina was teenager, her Grandma Flo made her a beautiful Sunbonnet Sue quilt. This cherished heirloom became the inspiration for this year's quilt. Grab your favorite prints and come take a stroll through the garden with us!
The finished size is 61.5" x 88" and will easily fit a twin-sized bed. The pattern is easily adaptable to make a throw quilt instead.
The first block will release 10 January 2021, with each subsequent block pattern releasing on the 10th of each month.
Flagship is the name of the 2020 quilt. We thought it was the perfect name for our first Block-of-the-Month quilt. At 47" x 60", it's the perfect size for snuggling under while reading a book or having a nap.
2020 may be past, but you still have the opportunity to make this quilt. With your one-time payment, you'll receive access to all of the written instructions and video tutorials for each block, as well as suggestions for layout and finishing this beautiful sampler quilt.
One bitter cold winter's day, we were both talking about our love and passion for sewing and quilting, and knew we wanted to share that love with others. As we were looking at a stack of vintage quilts that Elizabeth had in her sewing room, we realized, with a few exceptions, neither of us had ever seen these blocks before. More talking and plotting and planning, and a few weeks later we decided to take the plunge.
At My Grandmother's Quilt, our mission is to deliver a wonderful quilt block with easy to follow written instructions along with a fun how-to video each month.
We're also partnering with Wooden Feetures to provide you with beautiful wooden-handled sewing tools that feature a seam ripper on one end and a stiletto on the other. Watch our products page!
