Pam Buda’s Vintage Patchwork arrived at my door last week and all I can say is “Oh Boy”! I don’t buy many pattern books because I like to draft my own so it is pretty rare for me to find a book where I want to make every project in it!
I met Pam (Heartspun Quilts) several years ago when she was teaching at our Maine show. I read her blog and have corresponded with her for some time, but until I read this book, I did not realize just how much we are alike!
There are 12 different projects in the book and you can make all of them with one 10” precut packet of 40 or more prints. You can buy a precut packet or make your own with forty 10” squares of your favorite fabrics. She has laid out the cutting diagram so that you can make the necessary cuts for every single project all at once. There’s a time saver!
So... I think you can guess the challenge part. Since there are 12 projects in the book, my challenge to myself and anyone who would like to join me, is to do one project each month beginning in January. This gives you plenty of time to get the book and collect your 40 squares. You can order your copy (here) and join in the fun!
I (along with my cohorts) still plan on continuing to make one mini each month in 2019 and would welcome anyone interested in doing the same. You can "pop in" any time throughout the year!
