The Stockings Were Hung...



Well hello!
Is it starting to feel a bit like Christmas where you are?
I have been enjoying the crisp winter weather...
mornings have been in the low 30's. 
Definitely sweater weather!



Are you sewing along with A Very Vintage Christmas
and the Fat Quarter Shop?


I have been busy making the Stocking Block 
this week...



There is not only one or two...

  

but I have made 4!


The Very Vintage Christmas book by Lori Holt of
Bee in My Bonnet has so many fun blocks...
and projects too!

I made the fun little Christmas quilt along that she
had put together on IG a few years ago...
using the blocks from her Quilty Fun book.

It is one of my favorite holiday quilts!

This time I decided to make a row quilt following 
one of the patterns in her book.

There are lots of

fun projects,
 large and small,
 in this book!

I decided I needed a row of stars too...





I will have more to show next week...
but for now, I need to go check out the other bloggers
and Instagramers to see what that made this week!

You can see link to the other blogs

Still Enjoying Perfection



Here we are!
The first week of December!
Can you believe it?

It's also been 10
Perfect 10 Quilt weeks!

We have one more week to go in the

have you been enjoying the 
Perfect 10 Quilt Along from the sidelines?

I was really surprised at the
uniqueness of the first little block...




These two blocks are the last ones in the book!
Rainbow Sherbet and Rocky Road!
Which is your favorite?




Now it's time for a wee bit less sewing and 
a little bit more holiday planning...

(boxes have the vintage ornaments in them)

But as soon as I finish decorating this tree... I will be back 
to show you the Perfect 10 Quilt...
all together and bound!


Each of these blocks are stand alone projects in
I hope to make a couple of the quilts in the book...
but for now
 the sampler of all the blocks 
have been so fun to make!

Be sure to visit all of the bloggers in the 
Perfect 10 Quilt Along!

Neapolitan or Peaches N Cream?

Can you believe that it's 
week 7 for the

The quilt along is by Fat Quarter Shop and
It's So Emma. They made a great book of projects
and designed a great layer cake ruler to go with it!
The ruler is fabulous... especially if you use layer cakes.

I can't believe someone hasn't developed one of these 10" square rulers before!



This week was pretty fun...
we made these little blocks...
It always amazes me to see what you can do with a flying geese unit!


I thought I would use my chalkboard for a size comparison.

Here is the Peaches n Cream block...



I would like to make the full size quilt using this block!
I think it would be great to use holiday colors for it.
Can't you just imagine?

Next week is the final week for the sampler...

 Rainbow Sherbet and Rocky Road are the last two
to make up and then
 it will be time to put them into 
rows!

I hope so, 
these weekly blocks are very doable :)

Vintage Christmas Sew Along: Past Present & Future




It has taken me forever to decide on my fabrics... and then 
pull them together... and here we are at week 4 
of the A Very Vintage Christmas Sew Along
featuring the Vintage Christmas
book by Lori Holt!






Here is a view of Christmas Past:

I can't believe that it has been 4 years since 
I participated in Lori Holt's Have
 Yourself A Quilty Little
 Christmas Quilt Along. (2014)
I really enjoyed making this one
so... I guess it's a given that I would love to play 
along in this Sew Along with FQS!

Each week there has been 5 little blocks to make...
actually, there are two size options in the book.
A 6" block or a 12" block.

This week I will be doing some catch up...
so if you haven't started yet... there is time to 
grab some cute fabrics...
I am using an assortment including Lori Holt's 
Christmas line Cozy Christmas!



Here is a view of Christmas Present:

There are so many options in Vintage Christmas! 
The possibilities are endless! I love the variety of
projects... you can see why I had a hard time 
deciding!

But for the sampler quilt you will need/want
the book and grab some fabrics...

Here are the fabric requirements:



or you could just order the kit that is available at
