Vintage Holiday Quilt Along


On a whim a few months ago I decided to join in with the Vintage Holiday Quilt Along organised by Heidi at FabricMutt. I pulled all the green fat quarters from my stash, plus half a dozen red ones and began to cut, the blocks came together quickly and I think they're really cute. Because I wanted to put this on the wall at Christmas rather than snuggle under it (it's pretty warm at Christmas here in Melbourne) I decided to leave off the border and piece a scrappy sashing together instead, it's backed and bound in a solid red and even the batting was from my cupboard, the only thing I ended up buying was thread when I ran out about 3/4 of the way through quilting.
I love how the colours worked together, and that even though I didn't use any specific Christmas fabrics it still turned out Christmassy.

 I had a lot of fun with the quilting on this one, it was a bit anything goes. I recently did Angela Walters' Craftsy Course on free motion quilting so I pretty much had a go at all of the quilting patterns she went through in the course which was great practice for future projects.
Thanks Heidi for inspiring me to actually get it done, it was a great fun quilt-a-long and now I have another lovely to add to my Christmas collection. There are some lovely quilts linked up on Heidi's blog.
