Vintage Treasures Is Here!! No Foolin'!

They're finally here!!  The books were delivered yesterday and I'm over-the-moon jazzed that the book is ready to send to all who pre-ordered it!!  Yahoo!!  Guess what I'll be doing today and tomorrow?  I couldn't be happier.
Olde Postage ~ Designed by Pam Buda ~ Vintage Treasures book for Martingale Publishing
Olde Postage, the quilt pictured above, is one of my all time favorite small quilts.   It's in my new Vintage Treasures book.  What's not to love about this quilt?  It's super scrappy, super easy and it catches your attention drawing you in to look at the fabrics.  No matter when I glance at it, I always have to look closer at those sweet prints.  

I made this quilt from the leftover squares from when I was piecing my Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt.  I pieced all the little squares as leader/enders, and it seemed to take no time at all.  

One of the favorite things I love about this quilt is the fussy cut red print border I used to separate the smallest squares from the larger squares.   It's a print from my Prairie Stitches fabric line way back in 2014.  When I was digging through my stash to find this print, I came across a bunch of fat quarters I had tucked into the yardage.....for what reason I don't know.  So, I decided to hold onto them for a giveaway when the book came out.  

And that's exactly what I'm going to do today!  Hang on a moment though before you leave a comment....read on.

Very soon, I'm going to host a little sew-along.  A freebie that's something really quick and easy to do.  It has four parts. 

Here's my question......Would you like all four parts to come in once a week for four weeks?  Or would you prefer they come four consecutive days?

Leave a comment on my blog answering the question above.  I have four fat quarters of the special stripe fabric used in my Olde Postage quilt to give away to four quilter friends.  Winners will be chosen on Sunday, April 5th.  To be fair and transparent to everyone, only blog comments are eligible.

 Now....I'm off to my shipping room to package up all these book orders and get them in the mail.  My thanks for everyone for your orders, emails and comments of support.  Without you, I would not be in business and able to continue doing what we love.  Thank you, thank you!! 

Dear friends, take good care of yourselves and your family.  Have happy stitches and above all, be well.......

  1. I think I would prefer to have them come in 4 consecutive days. When I get my teeth into something, I'd like to finish it...especially if it is smaller and doable in a reasonable amount of time.
    Thanks! Love your designs!

  2. Beautiful little quilt! I'm thinking 4 days in a row would be fun and encouraging in this strange time we're living in.

  5. Congrats on the new books - love your patterns. I vote for once a week for four weeks.

  6. Would like the sew along to go in sequences, gives time to complete and even chance to finish timely. Thanks, excited for your new book.

  7. I love your sewalongs! Seeing as you asked, I think that the quicker clue schedule would be my preference. These days, the days already go by so slowly. Waiting a whole week for the next clue might seem like a month. Whichever you choose, thank you!

  8. I would prefer 4consecutive days! Love that border print.

  9. once per week is a good idea...esp with so many going on around the net these days....lovely red stripe print!

  10. Four parts over four weeks please! I know we are in self isolation madly sewing, but it gives me something to look forward too...and remember which day of the week it is!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Once a week for four weeks please, so I have something to look forward to and remind me which day of the week it is!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would vote for once a week so that the enjoyment is spread out! Thanks for all you do to spread your joy in stitching!

  13. Hey Pam! I can't remember if I preordered a copy or not! But if I did, please don't send it because our border is closed and it will just be returned to you from the post office! I would love to do a little sew along with you and have the clues released every four days. I'm excited to see what it is!! Thanks so much.

  14. I love postage stamp quilts and your Olde Postage is adorable. I would vote for once a week for 4 weeks instead of 4 consecutive days. Either is really okay - there's just a chance I might be able to stay on top of it if the parts came out weekly. :-) I hope you and yours are doing well!

  15. I would prefer once a week. This sounds like fun. Can't wait to start.

  16. A sew along sounds exciting! I think I'd like the parts in four consecutive days best but I'd also be happy with 4 consecutive weeks. Stay well!

  17. I would prefer weekly postings for a sew along. It is easier to continue with other projects on a weekly basis. We can just take a few hours to do that weekly part of the quilt and return to current work. Thanks for the great fabrics and small quilt patterns. I love shirtings.

  18. I would prefer that it be done over 4 weeks. Thank you for doing a sew-a-long again. I have done all of your sew-a-longs and have loved all of them!

  19. That's a tough decision.. maybe 4 days in a row. Can't wait to get my book (and some fabric I just had to have)! I would love to win the stripe fabric. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I like the idea of 4 days in a row for the sew along pattern. When they are spread out over time, I always manage to miss one. I will blame it on being too busy, not forgetful!

  21. What a darling quilt. Thank you for a sew along during this time to keep us busy & use up our stash. Which ever plan works for you is good as we’re home for awhile. When we are released back to shop the quilt stores better be ready for all who want to touch, see color & what’s new plus refill supplies. Ordering online just isn’t the same.

  22. What a gorgeous quilt! I've actually been saving up some leftover squares for something similar. I have lots of time on my hands right now, so I'd love to see the instructions come on 4 consecutive days! Thanks for the chance to woin some of your beautiful fabric!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like the quilt you made from your leftover fabric. And how generous to hold a sew along. I would probably prefer the steps on a weekly basis, but I can also adapt to either. Thanks for your generosity.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations on the book! My preference is weekly for the sew-along instructions. So many designers and bloggers are jumping in to help cheer us quilters with these, and I thank you for adding another coronacation project. But, that said, weekly will allow us to keep up with the many sew-alongs.

  25. Oh, let's just do all four in four days! Not so much going on in life right now! Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. 4 days in a row. Thanks for all you do.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love to take part in quilt alongs. I would like one part per week for 4 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love your quilt, Pam! That is such a gorgeous striped print you used to frame the center. Wow--love it! Can't wait to get the book in my hands!
    Personally, if the clues come to close together I can get overwhelmed and give up. But that is my own weakness and others may prefer them coming that way.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Because I can't wait, I prefer four consecutive days! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. A darling quilt. Thanks for the sew along to keep us busy & help to reduce our stash. Whichever plan works for you will work for me as I’m staying home as asked/required. The quilt shops better be ready when we are able to shop & feel fabric, see new colors & prints, talk plans & meet friends.

  31. I would like the parts to come once a week for 4 weeks. I'm looking forward to this sew along. It will surely be a bright spot to look forward to during this stressful time. Thank you for doing this.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Congratulations! It looks like another winner! :) I would prefer 4 consecutive days... stretching things out would just be torture. ;) LOL Thanks for the fun!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I vote once a week for four weeks. Four days would be over too quick to really enjoy it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am so excited to know the book will be here soon! Personally, I prefer the steps all at once. It would be easier for me to space them out if necessary rather than run out of quilting fun! I can’t wait!

  35. I vote for once a week.

  37. Congratulations on your new book Pam.. love the title!! I'm loving the Olde Postage quilt... i recognize a few prints in it. I always enjoy your sew-alongs... four consecutive days would be wonderful... something to look forward to every day. However, i'm happy to go with whatever suits you :)... stay safe... hugs, Marian in Aust (I've just had a jab in each arm... flu & pneumococcal vaccine... just to be on the safe side)

  38. One clue over 4 weeks is my choice! Love the cover of the book!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, I love a sew-along! I do better when the post are spread out. I work a full-time job during the week so only sew for longer periods of time on the weekends. If all the parts came out during the week, I would feel rushed to get them all done in a weekend.

  40. I would prefer once a week over 4 week period. I am doing a couple of other sew alongs and would squeeze a few hours once a week for this one. Thanks for all you do for quilters. Stay well.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi! I prefer once a week. I’m working on a project so that would help me... Looking forward to sewing with you!, Thanks. ☺️

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well, Pam, you are over the top again!! Your Olde Postage quilt is so sweet! I loved looking at all the different prints and shirtings. I would prefer once a week and have something to look forward to as I'm NOT going anywhere soon. Just got a new JUKI in the mail yesterday to go with my Bernina, Janome Gem, Featherweight, and my grandmother's 1919 Singer treadle. A project for each machine is my goal over the next couple of weeks. Continued good health for you and yours!

  43. Congratulations on the publication of your book. It looks wonderful and I hope I can get a look at it (after this coronavirus mess is over).
    Once a week, please. I don't believe I could keep up with once a day. Thank you!

  44. I would prefer once a week, giving us a week to complete the block, thanks for the giveaway.

  45. Once a week for your new sew along. Can’t wait I love everyone you’ve done.

  46. How about once a week. I am working on trying to finish other projects, so that would work best for me. But, whatever you decide, I'm in! Thank you in advance for offering this free sew along. HUGS... and stitches

  50. Congratulations on the new book! I hope you are staying well! I just finished the Christmas Archaeology Sew-A-Long, and am definitely looking forward to this new one! Since I am impatient and too excited to see the finished product, I think four days in a row would be great... but I will do it whether it's four days or four weeks in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  51. How exciting to have a sew along to help brighten these days! I like to have the parts quickly in case I get inspired to get right to work. Thanks for something to look forward to!

  62. great quilt love the stripe fabric I would rather have project steps come out once a week so have time to do it. thanks for doing this

    ReplyDelete
  63. How exciting Pam!!!! Congratulations to you:) A little SAL sounds great. Since you said it is quick and easy, my vote is 4 consecutive days!! What fun this will be, no matter how you choose to share with us. I will be ordering your book from you now. Thank you, your such an inspiration to so many of us.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh my...looks like a wonderful book! And that fabric!?!?!?! LOVE IT!!! I don't have a lot of time for sew alongs or anything else, so for me, once a week would be much more do-able. I can't wait for my FQ bundle to arrive - should be today or tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love Olde Postage and would love to have a FQ of the red print! I would prefer 4 days in a row for your sew along. Thanks!

  66. Since we all have some time to kill I think once a week would be great! I can't wait to receive your book!

  68. I vote for the instructions to come once a week for four weeks. Making your designs is such a joy, and we need to stretch that joy out nowadays! It would be a nice treat for which to look forward for an entire month. Thank you for sharing your talent and passion with your fellow quilters.

    ReplyDelete
  69. My personal preference would be to do the sew a long 4 days in a row. I'd like to get right to it, and I like instant gratification. That's why small quilts are so appealing to me.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'd say, if its on the easy side, post the steps consecutively. We could still take our time, if we wish. I love your little Olde Postage quilt, Pam, and lookk forward to browsing through more of the book.

    ReplyDelete
  71. A sew-along sounds like so much fun right now, especially since we're staying at home and have some time on our hands. I think it would be nice to have it once a week to kind of stretch it out a bit. Thanks for hosting this, I'm really looking forward to it!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I prefer once a week for 4 weeks. It will be fun to wait for your next week's posting. A little sew along is something to look forward to during this difficult time and it will be fun. Thanks for the opportunity to win the beautiful stripe fabric fat quarter.

  73. So excited to be getting your new book soon!! I love the way you used the red out of that striped fabric for your border. What a great idea!! And that's what's so nice about these smaller quilts. A fat quarter can be used in so many ways. Congratulations on your second book Pam, I know I'm going to love it!!

  74. Olde Postage is an eye catching gem...absolutely love it! As for the sew-along, either 4 consecutive days or once a week is great, just happy to participate in a freebie :)

  77. Oh my, this is a tough question. Guess I'd have to say 4 days, that way I could look at the whole sequel when checking back to see the project. There's not much time to sew right now, the garden must go in. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I would like the clues to come every day for four days, but I'm happy to do this sew along either way. The fat quarter would be a lovely quarantine birthday gift to me! Thanks for all you do for us.

  79. For the sew-along, I think I would prefer 4 consecutive days. With the situation that we are experiencing, I would like to be able to look forward to the sew-along quickly rather than having to wait.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think I prefer 4 parts on one day. I love your darling little quilt and the fabric is wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Your new book looks wonderful! I'd prefer the sew-along stretched so instructions are broken into 4 weekly segments...but in any way, thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Love your new book. Can't wait to see it in person! I would love to do a sew along with you and after just finishing sew along with Laundry Basket Quilts, it was so much fun to have a new block to look forward to each day! So I guess I'm voting for each day.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Your postage stamp quilt is precious. I love these sew alongs that different designers are posting. Helps use up our stash & even find fabric we had forgotten. Thank you. The quilt shops better be ready when we are released to go touch fabric, see new prints & colors, talk in person with others & see what they did while homebound. As to your scheduled sew along I would say what works best for you. None of us are going anywhere but you probably have deadlines. But if you can stretch it then we can work on all of our ufo’s, other sew alongs & some may not feel added stress.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Your postage stamp quilt is adorable. It is so sweet with the smaller ones together, then bordered, and then the larger ones. Brilliant idea! For your Quilt along, I would choose once a week (I'm still finishing UFOs as well as a couple other Quilt alongs!). Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  85. All tour parts to come in once a week.
    I only sew on weekend so i prefer once on a week.Thanks
