Villa Rosa Designs Fast & Fun Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Hello,

Today is my turn in the Villa Rosa Designs Fast & Fun blog hop. I'm also having a giveaway on my blog, not just the sponsor giveaways.


I was asked to participate by Trisha.  I'd participated in a blog hop for her book 'I Love Precut Quilts' back in 2017.  I enjoyed that blog hop, and thought that this blog hop would be fun, too.  

I'm a quilter, thrift store junkie and collector of vintage sewing machines.  I also do most of my sewing on vintage sewing machines (mainly hand cranks and my Featherweight).

We were given 5 different patterns to choose from for this blog hop.



You can purchase a set of these 5 patterns HERE.  Villa Rosa is also giving away sets of these patterns on each blog that is participating.

I chose to make the Hillside Charm quilt since I had a panel sitting around that I hadn't gotten around to using, that I could trim to size.  I also had all the other fabrics in my stash.  We've had so much rain and gray skies since I finished this, that I had to take photos of the quilt at my large quilt guild's meeting a few days ago (large gym with lousy lights, but a great carpeted wall to pin the quilt to).

Tinkerbell

The directions on the pattern were easy to follow.  I did change up one thing.  It called for 9 different fabrics for the 5" squares, but I had collected 10 different fabrics, and went ahead and used all 10 fabrics.  I'm sure the extra squares that I cut will be used in another project.  Using the 'extra' fabric made it so that I could arrange my fabrics in 'order', not random (I'm an order type of gal).  

I did minimum quilting on this, and I'll finish the center quilting by hand at a later date (I'm not good at free motion quilting, and I want to outline Tinkerbell and the letters TINK, along with some of the hearts).  I did add a nice flange binding to the quilt using the same pale aqua in Tinkerbell's wings.

I also added one of my labels on the back of the quilt.



I had some Tinkerbell flannel fabric, but not enough to cover the borders, so I added some yellow to finish the backing.

Yesterday, I was given another panel that would be great for this pattern.  I may be pulling more fabrics and making this quilt again using this new panel.

I also have ideas for the other 4 patterns, that I'll make in the future.

  2. You did a great job with your quilt! Hillside Charm is one of my favorites with this blog hop. I have a 1945 featherweight. I do use it. It is great to take when I have sew days @quilt club.

  3. I love that you ordered your border squares! I also have panels that need to become quilts and would probably order my border just as you did.

  4. I love how you used some extra fabric pieces for the quilt backing!

  5. I do have a SingerFeatherweight, but I rarely sew on it.
    That Stash'n Store looks interesting. Is the bottom on it weighted?

  6. I love Vintage machines. I do sew on my mom's old Singer 501 as well as my old Singer Genie. Awesome workhorses. Thanks

  7. I have a Singer Featherweight that my mom left to me before she passed away several years ago. I've named her Ellie after my mom - funny thing - I have a grand daughter named Ellie, also named after my mom. <3

  9. Sadly, I do not have a vintage sewing machine. I think the ones that get painted in new bright colors are kinda' cool though!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have several vintage machines, I am currently working on a quilt on my featherweight. I learned to sew on my mom's vintage sewing machine, a 15-91. When she got a modern machine in the late 60's, she gave me tje 15-91. Jo sent me.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have a small Kenmore travel machine from the 70s. Not sure that would be considered vintage, though.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just got a Featherweight and will be taking a class soon, to make sure everything is in running order, so I can start sewing on her.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, I have 5 vintage sewing machines, White and White Rotary, Singer, Kenmore and Mercury. Yes, I've sewed on some of them and really want to use them more. I also have 2 Vikings and 1 Pfaff. I know these machines really well, so it is easier to use them if I don't want to think about how to use the machines. I've made it a goal to use all the vintage machines in 2023. I love that the Hillside Charm pattern uses a panel. I have several panels that need to be used. Thanks for sharing on this blog hop, I'm really enjoying it! Diane

  14. I love your quilt!!! I have a Featherweight that travels with me and a treadle machine that doubles in the winter as my plant stand.

  15. Jo sent me. No, I don't have a vintage sewing machine. I do like the controlled scrappiness of your border for your Hillside Charm quilt. That's my kind of quilt, too.

  17. Thank you for sharing your quilt you made. I have a couple vintage sewing machines, I have my mothers Singer that she purchased in the early 1950's. She made payments on it as it was a top of the line machine that cost over $250 (that was a lot of money back then) I even have the receipt from when she purchased it. I also have my very first sewing machine that was given to me for my high school graduation (1977). I do use it once in awhile. ryarolim@gmail.com

  19. Tink is adorable! I have some panels that I could use that pattern on. Recently at a quilt retreat I won a featherweight, I learned how to thread it and wind a bobbin but that's all I've done with it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love your labels--I've been thinking about ordering that type.

  23. Cute finish!! I do have a treadle sewing machine that I did use several years ago. Also have a featherweight, that I should use more I guess;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Jo sent me. I love your quilt!! So bright and lively. I piece my quilts on a 1950s Singer. I have a newer Bernina that I sew clothes and binding on but I find the Singer better for piecing accuracy. I'm in Canada so not eligible for your draw. My email is bagpipers159@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  25. Just for your stats, I have 5 vintage Singer machines. (1923, 1925, 1928, 1936 and I forgot the newest one) I also have a 1970 Singer. I don't sew on any of those. I prefer my Janome of 2010 and my Brother of 2018. I'm from Canada so ... but that looks like a great gadget to have. Enjoy! ;^)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Very sweet quilt! I too prefer to finish panels with hand quilting to highlight the design. My main machine is a 50's Singer 401A, a real workhorse. I also have a Featherweight which I love for piecing. No computerized machines in this Canadian home! basaran.family (at) rogers (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is adorable - It is going to make a child very happy. Maybe you'll show it again when you finish the hand quilting?? I do have a vintage machine from my grandma but I rarely sew on it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have a few panels just waiting for the inspiration!! Thank you!
    I have both grandmother's treadle sewing machines. One is not operational and the other needs a belt replaced but remember mother sewing on it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. The Tink panel and quilt is super cute. I have so many panels and I think this pattern will be great for several of them. I do not own any vintage machines. Still a newbie-ish sewer and can just now can sew a straightish seam with all the aids on a new model. kathy_cocker@yahoo.com

  41. I don't have a vintage machine, but do have my mom's Singer Slant-o-matic machine from the 1960's. I haven't used it in a long time (about 50 years).

  43. I have had a few vintage machines but have had to downsize my sewing area. I had a featherweight, a treadle and my MIL's very old Singer. The FW was sold, the other machines given to sewing friends.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Jo sent me. Nice idea for a panel I have lying around

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have picked up a few panels and I love to see what you did with yours. I will definitely look for this pattern! I started off with my grandma's New Home machine and have since passed it to my daughter and upgraded to my mom's (30ish? year old) New Home.

  46. I have a white Featherweight but I rarely sew on it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't have any but sure wish I had the room

    ReplyDelete
  48. I purchased a vintage sewing machine for $15 at an estate sale. It is probably like a 1970's machine so I guess that is vintage. I have not sewn with it, but I do love it. It is teal-colored and in excellent condition. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have my grandmothers machine, but rarely sew on it. I also have a treadle but don't know how to use it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have my mom's featherweight (1938, I think), and my first Pfaff (1956, so I guess it's an antique). They're both in good condition, although I haven't used them recently. They're really handy for some projects! peggibarrett808@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have several vintage machines, but admittedly, I rarely use them. They sure do look pretty on display, though!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hi, Jo sent me! I am not sure what you consider vintage. I have my mom's old Singer that is probably from 1974. I do not sew on it currently, but I used it about 10 years ago to put a binding on a quilt. Thank you for all the inspiration on your site.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I do actually have a treadle sewing machine in a cabinet. It needs work, but haven't taken the time to research to see if there's anyone near me that works on them. Would be cool to get it working. I can remember doing a little sewing on one when I was really young. Thanks for your participation and the chance to win a prize! pas66427@yahoo.com

  54. I have to admit Hillside is thus far my favorite pattern. I love the flange...good idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love how your quilt turned out. That's such a nice way to deal with a panel! I own a featherweight and love taking it class when we are just doing simple straight-line sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Cheryl! I love seeing all the different bloggers who have chosen this pattern to enhance a panel. I love the addition of the flange border! I do not have a vintage machine now, but I did under I had to downsize. It was my dad's sewing machine! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have never owned a vintage sewing machine before. Thanks for participating in the blog hop, your quilt turned out great!

    ReplyDelete
  58. This pattern the hillside looks pretty straight forward easy for a beginner like !e to be able to do. You mentioned cutting the panel down to work...how do you figure out how to cut it down to fit?I don't have a feather weigh machine I'm starting my quilting on a singer simple 2263.

  59. Cheryl I love how you incorporated the panel in Hillside Charm. I do have a couple of vintage machines. The one that I use on occasion is my Featherweight. This is such a great giveaway. Thanks!

  60. I do not have any vintage sewing machines. I don't have enough space! But as long as I have a running machine to keep quilting, I'm happy!

  61. I have 3 featherweight machines that I found cleaning out my dad's house. I haven't had a chance to do anything with them yet, except rescue them.

  62. I absolutely LOVE your Tinkerbell quilt, Cheryl! I do own many vintage sewing machines. Probably too many! :)

  69. What an adorable quilt Cheryl! Nicely done. I have five vintage Singer machines, one of which I inherited from my grandma, a 1904 treadle, and a 1979 Elna that was my first beloved machine.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love your quilt. I have 2 singer featherweights, I had another I really loved. But my daughter needed one so I shared that one with her. I used that one on trips and love the way it stitched. So I bought another and then I found a white one. I love they way they stitch beautifully! I love that they are light and easy to take when I travel.

  71. No vintage sewing machines at my house, just Berninas!

  72. I have one Singer Featherweight.. but I'm "afraid" to sew on it. I'm taking a Featherweight class in March & hope to become more comfortable with it then. Oh, I also have my great-grandparent's Singer treadle machine (but do not sew on that either).

    ReplyDelete
  73. Does a 1980 Kenmore count?! My mom gave it to me for Christmas, after I got my 1st apartment and she found out I sewed a whole dress by hand. That's for piecing and my Babylock is for quilting. Anne Akyork1960@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love your quilt. Yes I have a vintage New Home treadle machine with a warranty certificate dated 1906. It is in a beautiful cabinet with all the original accessories. It has been in my husband's family since new and I just received it, but have not tried to see if it even works yet.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love that pattern. I have a darling quilt using it from a trunk show about quilt guild. I have a vintage singer treadle machine I inherited from my mother - in- law. Still getting brave enough to do a quilt on it. Higleydms@gmail.com is my email.

  80. Cheryl, your idea to showcase Tinkerbell in this quilt design is so creative! What a fun quilt! Yes, I have a vintage treadle Pfaff sewing machine. I bought it at an auction and I was told it still worked, but I have not tried it. I use its cabinet to hold my laptop next to my machines.

    ReplyDelete
  81. No vintage sewing machine for me, but I have friends who use them and love them for piecing. That Hillside pattern is so nice for showcasing a panel.....and your "Think" is so cute....great colors.

  82. The Hillside Charm is perfect for your fairy panel!!!

  83. I enjoy the color play and look forward to seeing you use the new panel! You asked for response to old machines, and yes, I have a trundle from 3 gens. ago. It has been refurbished and is not being used. Kinda afraid to... stureym@gmail.com

  85. That is a cute Tinkerbell quilt. I like your silky label also. I do have one vintage sewing machine. She's beautiful. I have never
    hooked her to sew. I don't have the cord. She is on a table in my sewing room in a special spot. My grandkids like her too.

  86. I sew on a circa 2008 Brother...not exactly vintage! LOL

  87. Years ago, I did have my grandmother's sewing machine. At that time, I wasn't interested in sewing. I gave it away. I now realize what I had... and would like to talk to my younger self about it.

  88. Yes I have two featherweights right now- I have used one of them in the past- but its been awhile. I also have 4 other newer machines.. Your quilt also looks very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Jo sent me to your blog. Really like what you did with the Hillside Charm pattern--it's so versitile! No, I do not have a vintage machine now, but learned to sew on a circa 1960's Kenmore.

    ReplyDelete
  90. What a wonderful adaptation of the pattetn!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Tink is the best, isn't she! I heard about this blog hop from Jo, and I'm loving it! Yes, I do have a vintage Singer - I can't remember what year, but it's in a wooden case with a handle on top, and it is electric. It belonged to my great grandmother, and I think my mother learned to sew using it. I remember powering it up a couple years ago to see if it still ran, and this year I hope to start using it once I source some bobbins. I'm a little worried about figuring out how to wind them, they're so different! I also have a Kenmore from the late 60's that I use all the time. It belonged to my mother and she taught me to sew using it. I feel it was very generous of her to let me have it.

  94. I love that border for sure I need to buy that pattern and use it on some panels I have for donation. I don't have any vintage machines. Would love a featherweight but too expensive for me.

  97. Hi Cheryl! As you know I have several vintage machines. The one I use the most is a 99-13 Singer I converted to a hand-crank. Yes, I enjoy sewing on it and plan to make my apron for the MO TOGA on it. Me e-mail address is skshepp1967@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hi, yes I have several vintage machines, most I have because I like the way they look, old Western Electric, a Morse, Singer 201-2 and my cute little green Singer 185k, they do work. I have taken out my Singer 401a from time to time but mostly I use my newer basic Janome HD3000.

  99. Only one vintage sewing machine at my house, a 1950 Singer Featherweight, which was a gift from a dear friend! I love it and use it!

    ReplyDelete
  103. This is my first blog hop and I am loving all the different versions of Villa Rosa. I do have a vintage sewing machine that I just was gifted by my mother-in-love. It is a featherweight. I have not yet started to use it but have plans to as it is in excellent condition.

  104. I have two 'vintage' machines and I don't sew on either one. One was my grandmothers machine that I think I may take in for a spa day to get her working again.

  105. Lovely quilt. I love that panel. And the new panel is beautiful. I have two Featherweights in my collection and I do sew on them I think they sew a better straight line than most zig zag machines.

  113. No, I don't have a vintage machine but I wish I had my grandmother's. I loved her old machine when I was a kid.

  114. You are a lady after my own heart. I have too many vintage sewing machines. I have given away a couple of treadles so now I only have one. I have collected mostly singers, but I also collect pretty clones, Brothers, Morses, etc. It is time for me to start thinning my herd. I can't sew on them all as I just have too many. My favorite is my Singer 301.

  115. I do have my grandmother's treadle machine but some pieces are missing in the bobbin area. Have tried to find someone able to repair it, but no luck. Do use my mother's 1950's Singer and my 1970's Kenmore tho!

  116. I have 2 featherweights, my Mom's & my MIL's I used to take them to retreats and sew at homes but I've got a Bernina that I like for retreats and another Bernina for at home sewing so they are both on the shelve just looking pretty. I also have a White and a Singer treadle machine, my husband is refinishing the cabinets for me.

  117. I love the pattern that you chose, it suits Tink! I do have a vintage machine. Several years ago I bought a Singer in a table, not a treadle. I put it in the garage. I think I need to pull it out and get her serviced! patti(dot)mcg(at)verizon(dot)net

  118. Tink's adorable. I do have a vintage sewing machine. It was my maternal grandmother's pedal Singer. I don't use it. I think it needs servicing.

  121. Every machine I own is vintage lol. My newest is early 1980s, my oldest is a 1902 Singer treadle. All told I have a flock of 12, but who's counting. I can't imagine sewing on a new machine. carla.infante64 at Gmail dot com

  125. Enjoyed seeing your Hillside Charm quilt. I do not have any vintage machines unless you count my 34 yr old Bernina. lol Learned to sew on a very old Singer but did not understand the value of a traditional machine back then. With "teapots" in the title of your blog, I assume you like them or collect them? I have a collection strawberry themed teapots.

  126. I have an old Singer treadle that had been electrified. I removed the motor, cleaned it, replaced the leather belt, etc. but it is still nit quite working properly. I need to find someone in MA who can help me figure out the problem. I loved seeing your quilts. susan.levitin@gmail.com

  127. I have my Great Aunt's featherweight, my Great Uncle's 99,that he sewed tack on & a vintage 70's Bernina 830 that I sew on the most, but if I am in the need for speed, I have a Juki. Your Hillside Charm turned out beautiful.

  132. I have several vintage sewing machines, but my favorite is an "American Home" hand crank. It is a Japanese clone of a Singer. It is my main sewing machine, especially for quilt piecing. I love sewing on it, so relaxing.

  137. What a cute way to give Tinkerbell the frame she deserves! I have several vintage sewing machines. I use one of them quite often, but some the rest are strictly for display. teeteredm at windstream dot net

  138. Your Tinkerbelle is a really cute quilt. I like the idea of the flange border also. Have not done one myself but intend to do one someday. Thank you for taking part in the Hop

  139. Your Tinkerbelle quilt is charming. I make mostly children's quilts for charity and am inspired to do something similar. As for vintage machines, I have my mother's old Featherweight from the early 50's. I use it primarily for workshops, retreats, and monthly meetings with my mini group. It's a real workshorse.
