FREE Quilt Pattern: Vintage Camping

Who loves a great free quilt pattern? I know I sure do! Right now I am going to deliver to you all a FREE beginner-friendly, accuquilt-friendly, throw size quilt pattern!

This FREE quilt pattern uses 12 traditional Churn Dash blocks and adds a border around all the sides, and the large scale of the blocks makes it great for any large-scale prints you want to show off!

QuiltCon 2019 // Nashville, TN

Towards the end of February, my mom, aunt and I visited Nashville for a long weekend to attend Quilt Con. My mom and I had gone in 2017 when it was in Savannah and that event was a pivotal point for me in connecting me with this amazing quilting community. I was so excited to get re-connected with the people I met 2 years ago and to meet some new friends face-to-face for the first time.

It was an amazing trip filled with so many great experiences. If you want to see Quilt Con in action, I have archived some of my Instagram stories into an archive called “Quilt Con”. Here are just a few highlights of the trip.

Newest member of the family – Sapphire 965Q

Attention, Attention!

We have a new arrival to the Homemade Emily Jane sewing studio!!!!

I’m very excited to announce the newest addition to my sewing family… the Husqvarna Sapphire 965Q!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably have seen a few photos of my new love on my feed, but I wanted to share an official announcement with you all!

Husqvarna Sapphire 965Q

A little backstory – For my 16th birthday my parents got me a sewing machine – my first love – a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 183 model. I was in a sewing class in school at the time and has been learning on an Emerald 116. I was thrilled, but honestly, I didn’t know how much use this machine would get until I started quilting three and a half years later. Now I use my Emerald 183 daily, and the need for an upgrade has become apparent. My 8 year old Emerald has been so good to me, so I knew I’d be happy if I stuck with the Husqvarna Viking brand. After extensive research, I decided to dive in and get the SAPPHIRE! I can’t wait to get started on my brand-new beast of a machine! This new machine does all the same stuff as my old one and SO. MUCH. MORE.

I’ve spent the better part of my free time leading up to getting the machine just looking up photos/information online and glancing over the owner’s manual. I’m so stinkin’ excited to now have this new sewing machine up and running! I’m going to be working on new skills, and incorporating the use of other feet/functions as well! Stay tuned to learn along with me!

So now for the hard part… what should I name this new baby of mine? Please comment below if you have any suggestions!!
