A Very Merry Vintage Christmas

Posted on August 18, 2012 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I've been on a Christmas kick lately, mostly for sewing, but I have even managed to pick up an early gift here or there when I run across something prefect for that perfect someone (Yay me, because for the last two years I have been completely and utterly last minute).  So here is another finished project, the pattern is called Vintage Christmas by Thimble Blossoms.  

This is a really, really easy pattern.  It also goes together incredibly quick, the most time consuming part is choosing your fat quarters to use.  Yep, I said fat quarters, this pattern is fat quarter friendly.  I love patterns that are fat quarter friendly!  I'm sure I'm not the only one that has a fat quarter stash, just waiting for the prefect project to come along... or am I?  Nah.... can't be.

Here is my favorite block.  The pattern has 12 different ornaments, I only chose four because I wanted a table runner for our naked kitchen table.

I used Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille, the pattern cover also features it nicely.  We have four different fat quarter bundles of Vintage Modern that would work great with this pattern.  I'm enjoying that it's not traditional Christmas fabric, the vintage look. I think it gives it a nice, fresh look.
