I have met some amazing quilters through Instagram and wanted to share with you one of those lovely people today. Susan (yardgrl60) is a prolific and very talented quilter and one of the nicest people I've met on IG. Recently she showed a picture of the vintage quilt, above, and how she recreated it. I asked for a tutorial and because she doesn't have a blog (yet-I'm whining loudly) I am sharing it with you. Below you will find a series of self-explanatory pictures that show how to make the block. For Susan's finished (and gorgeous) quilt please go to her Instagram feed - yardgrl60. It is stunning and is named Muse-ing! For more about Susan see below...
Block finishes at 11.75"
Susan was born and raised in Florida and currently lives in Jacksonville. She has been happily married for 32 years with 5 children. Her very first quilt was made in 1984 and was a Christmas tree skirt which she still uses. The next quilt was made in the 90's and she was hooked! Susan is a self taught quilter and also does beautiful needlework. Her favorite fabric designer at the moment is Fig Tree and is drawn to the vintage feel of the fabric. Her tastes are varied though and she enjoys other designers as well such as Kaffe Fassett and Edyta from Laundry Basket Quilts. People often think that Susan sews all day long because of the beautiful quilts she turns out regularly but she explains that she is a morning sew-er, getting other things done during the day and enjoys needlework in the evenings. Please visit her Instagram at yardgrl60 to see her amazing creations!
