What is Vintage Modern?

What is Vintage Modern?
Wikipedia says the page does not exist.
Couldn't find it in the Dictionary.
 Did a search in google with results from Miami antique shows to shoes to furniture.
 My daughter in law is designing her home in her head right now and she has
been having a hard time giving a name to the style she wants to achieve.
Sounds like Vintage Modern to me and I was right.
 Just the perfect mix of antique paired with sleek lines and free of clutter. (wait until she has kids!)

I wanted to talk about another Vintage Modern that will possibly end up creating a wikipedia page because of all the buzz. It is the Vintage Modern line by Bonnie and Camille. One of those perks around here is that I had the privilege to touch and even sew this this line  that will be in stores late April/May.
(don't be mad at me that I am showing you fabric that you cant get yet. Think of it as I am helping you save and budget for when it arrives)

This is just one of the yummy patterns from Camille using Vintage Modern. The pattern is named,
On a Whim. Guess what, I made it for her. I asked her if she had something I could sew with their new line.. She thought I was crazy, but you know how it is when you need a
distraction from all the other things going on.
It was therapy.
So thank you Camille for the therapy, you saved me $$.
I have a soft spot for Camille with her growing family and looming deadlines for 4 quilt projects sent into me, during Christmas holidays. Geez, I am surprised she even answers my calls. I remember what it was like with a bunch of rug rats running around. By the way I also offered to watch her kids instead and she did think about that for a split second. I didn't tell her that my husband ran over Travis when he was 6,
but I will save that story for a different time.
I have to enter a disclaimer that I didn't call Bonnie and ask her for a therapy project. She had just as many projects, as many kids and even grand kids. What was I thinking?
 
Here is one of Bonnie patterns that I could have made.

Then I found this project that I can combine by scraps of
Bliss, Ruby and Vintage Modern over at Film in the Fridge.




OR I wonder if it is to late for me to join
in on the Swoon Along that Katy at I'm a Ginger Monkey is
hosting.  Check out all the color options in the Swoon along flickr group.
 
SO many choices.
I just need to jump in and get some sewing therapy.
 
Hope you get in some sewing time this week also.

  1. Lissa, I think you should join us in the Swoon along. I am very lucky to have received some pre-cuts of VM in my little e-shop already. It's very hard not to keep it all myself.

  2. Really--you should join up! I'm doing my Swoon in Flurry and I really, really want to do batiks. Just not sure on the background yet. Maybe solids, oh my goodness, now I know--I have to make a whole flock of Swoon! (yes, lame pun intended)

  3. You should come and Swoon with us! And there's talk of a Whim-along coming in a month or two. We are crazy for Camille's patterns over there! (I'm 3 blocks into my Swoon quilt, and already planning my fabrics for On a Whim--crazy, I tell you!)

  7. The On A Whim quilt you pieced for Camille is absolutely beautiful. I think I need to make one. She definitely has a lot going on, it was so nice of you to do that for her.
