Vintage Christmas Quilt

I have my Vintage Christmas Quilt all done and it is so fun along side of all of my Vintage Christmas Trucks!vintage Christmas quiltThis 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.vintage Christmas quiltI 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?vintage Christmas quiltThe 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!

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!!!  :)

Thanks for Visiting…Merry Vintage Christmas!

  5. Great job on your quilt. I started this one a few months ago, but got frustrated with pressing all the little pieces on the truck blocks, and put it away. I couldn’t get them accurate – especially the little trees. The pattern doesn’t say to press them open, but I feel they need to be. Do you have any suggestions?? Now that I’ve see yours, it makes me want to get mine out of the UFO pile 😉. Maybe it will be done for next Christmas!

    1. Liz, That truck and tree block are hard to get right. My friend and I had to unpick each of our a few times especially on the first one. After that we seemed to get the hang of it a little better. Yes, you need to press the seams good. I can’t remember if we pressed all of the seams open or just pressed them to the dark side, but either way, you need to press each seam good! That will help with the piecing. Good luck!
