Vintage ChristmasMonday, December 03, 2012
It's not too late to start a Christmas quilt, right? I'm so susceptible to quilting peer pressure. I've been watching so many bloggers make Camille's Vintage Christmas quilt pattern. I keep thinking, oh!, that looks so fun. But when I saw Sherri make it, I totally caved. This is fun sewing at it's best. The blocks are big and easy and jelly roll friendly. It really is such a fun quilt.
I used Cosmo Cricket's Dear Mr. Claus for most of the blocks with a little bit of stash thrown in. My white fabric is Pam's wreath print white on white from her first line. I love the wreaths.
My blocks are sew cute. I only spent a few hours over the weekend and I got 6 blocks (half the pattern) completed.
I threw in a bit of Riley Blake Alpine Wonderland for one of the blocks above. I have a few fat quarters of that line. It makes me want to make 2 of these quilts. I'm thinking this would be a fantastic project for my sisters and nieces to make in 2013. It is a great beginner project and fun for all quilting levels. (Just a tip: If you have a friend you can split a jelly roll with just a few adjustments, add white fabric and a border fabric for this quilt.)
