Have you ever wanted to have a vintage quilt, but didn’t have the hundreds of dollars to get the one you wanted? I can understand. If you know how to already or are interested in learning how to quilt, a great way to get an inexpensive vintage quilt is right before you. You can buy vintage quilt blocks and assemble them into a homemade vintage quilt of your own! Let’s take a look at how you can do this and some of the advantages of making a vintage quilt yourself.
Truly vintage quilts can be expensive. This is in part because of the time that goes into making any quilt by hand. It’s also because the quilt is somewhat of a collector’s item because it is older. If you want a vintage quilt for yourself and have the tools and the know-how to make one, why shouldn’t you have a vintage quilt of your own? You can make one yourself for a fraction of the price of an already made vintage quilt.
At first, you might think that getting your hand on enough quilt blocks to assemble a vintage quilt would be quite an undertaking. In reality, there is a huge supply of vintage quilt blocks just waiting for you to make a quilt out of them. I’ve found that the best place to find these vintage quilt blocks is online. There’s a great selection, and lots of people just looking for someone to take their vintage quilt blocks off their hands.
Buying vintage quilt blocks will help your quilting in general too. When you buy vintage quilt blocks, you will get neat fabrics and designs that you can use for your first quilt. After that, you can use them as inspiration for later quilts. Vintage quilt blocks are thus a way to make many great quilts!
