I have my Vintage Christmas Quilt all done and it is so fun along side of all of my Vintage Christmas Trucks!This was a fun quilt to make even though it had a million pieces! (That might be a slight exaggeration!) But it does have a lot of little pieces to piece together. My friend Kathy, and I went to the cabin a few weeks ago and got our quilts all cut out and we got one of the truck blocks all put together so we knew how to do it.I saw this vintage truck on main street in Lehi, Utah and I knew it would be the perfect place to take pictures. So, I went inside, and asked if I could take pictures and they very graciously said that I could! Don’t you just love this truck?The pattern for this Vintage Christmas quilt is from Erica Made Designs. It is a great pattern and is very detailed. My friend and I were able to read the directions and put the pieces together!
Size-wise this quilt is perfect…it is 69″ x 74″ and it is a fat quarter friendly quilt. Great for wrapping up in front of the fireplace on a cold wintery night!Here is the full open quilt. For some reason, this quilt just invokes fond memories for me! I learned how to drive a stick in my dad’s old pick-up truck. Oh, those were the days!This close-up shows some of the quilting. I did an all-over stipple pattern in the middle of the quilt, with a loopy pattern on the two borders.Here is the quilt in my kitchen. I put it on one of my antique ladders for display and I love it! This really makes me happy! :)
Are you getting ready for the holidays? This Vintage Christmas Quilt has made me ready, but for the nostalgic side of Christmas not the commercial.
My daughter sent me a text the other day with this cute little antique firetruck and asked if I wanted it…well…YES!!!
She found someone selling it on Facebook!
I love that she is always looking out for her mother!!! :)
