What's new!




In all the Fall Quilt market  and Houston Quilt Festival hub-bub... 
Here at VFW Quilts, we are scrambling to finish some new projects!  YAY For New Projects!
Because you don't have enough do you? ;-)

HOUSTON QUILT FESTIVAL BOOTH #2335
Come by and see us!!!
NOV 1st - 5th, 2017

Here is my New Quilt "Scenic Overlook!"  It's a pattern available on the website, and as a kit! A fun quilt to make using a FQ bundle of Futurum Or any fabulous scraps and a pretty back ground fabric.  I wanted a quilt that was interesting to look at and really showed off the fabrics.  So the rectangles are doing just that.  Sometimes fabrics are just to pretty to cut up into tiny pieces!  Am I right?

The Scenic Overlook quilt is now hanging in the store, before I have pack up all the new stuff and take it to Houston!  We also have some new bundles added to the website:
Here is the new Black & White Bundle!  I know there are many of you "Black & White fabric" collectors out there!   When we vend we find out who you all are!  ;-)

Besides Black and white, POLKA DOTS are the next favorite bundle!  We've put the FQ bundle together of the Infinite dots from my Futurum Collection.  
I rcvd in the mail this week a copy of the Linda Pumphrey's new Book, Red & White Quilting!  What a treat!!  I recently have made a few several Red & White Quilts, so this sparked my ideas again to make yet another!  I found this Carpenter's Square quilt to be so gloriously over the top!  Isn't it lovely!! Sigh!!!  Red & white Quilt = Comfort Food...Classic and comforting! This all the right notes!

Fun Weekend in W


 I scooted off last weekend to the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts Where I was lecturing and teaching a two day class on True Herringbone Quilts, using partial seams, from my New Book Modern Quilt Magic.

It's such a great class to teach, as folks are so convinced they are difficult, and they find out that it really is like MAGIC when they sew together like a breeze! 

Here are a few pics from the class of 22 students from all over... Texas, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois... I really appreciate them all coming the distance.

It's great having that size of class so we can learn from each other as we talk about design and color choices and tricks!


I've gotten a lot of very good feedback on the book, and MANY people have picked up the book and jumped in to try the class projects!  YES! The book is broken down, so that each new TRICK I am teaching you is achieved by learning it FRIST in a small scale project. The book is written just as I teach it, so be sure to READ, LOOK and MAKE!

Do you have your copy yet?
click here.






We have many new products in the store, including the Florid Blooms templates that have been so high in demand! ( for my giant DWR ) 
Also!
We have our booth assignment for Houston International Quilt Festival! Come to the booth and say hi!
Booth 2335 on the main aisle.

International Quilt Festival in Houston
Houston, Texas on Friday Sept. 8th


I happened to be in Houston the week after the storm very briefly on my way to California, and I'm here to tell you the International Quilt Festival will go on as planned at the George R. Brown Convention Center. All roads from the airports to hotels to the convention center are dry and Houston is open for business! The best way to support Houston right now is to come and enjoy Houston Hospitality and visit the International Quilt Show!
...AND! VFW Quilts will be at Festival with a booth!
Booth 2235 , so make sure you come by to see me! Information regarding the festival can be found here. Nov 1st - 5th, 2017 


NYC DAY CLASS IN MY HOME
December 6, Victory Block Class               ONE SPOT LEFT!!

And it's up!

Ever wonder how a 30' quilt gets hung?
Here you go!

You may recall me showing you the quilt in Progress, "A Garden for All Seasons", which hung at Spring Paducah.... Video


      (many pics at instagram as well. you all follow me there right? victoriafindlaywolfe )

 Well It's gone to hang at it's new home!
Simplicity Creative Groups new offices...


Me and a few peeps, did a...One, Two and a Three, and up it went... All 28 lbs of it...








And that's how it's done! We used NoSeeUms quilt system,  to hang this beast.  Easy to hang!
I'm honored to have found this a quilt home at Simplicity.  Lucky for me that their 40' wall needed a quilt I happened to have. LOL Be sure to watch the video above for info about the quilt... Quilted By Shelly Pagliai who posted about it here.
