Vintage Christmas Quilt

Just finished sewing this quilt together and could not wait to share with you .
The pattern is Vintage Christmas by Erica Arndt.

I chose red Grunge fabric for the trucks and used Juniper Berry for the trees and borders

These  trucks are good size and I am even thinking about making a pillow !

Camping trip getaway !

         We went on our first maiden voyage with our new trailer a few weeks ago.
We had no internet signal in the mountains and I am just getting around to posting
these pictures .  It was actually nice to have no phone and computer .

We had the whole campground to ourselves and the weather was perfect !

The lake was beautiful but my goodness there is a lot of dead trees from the drought :-(

I was even able to finish binding a couple of small quilts

Happy Sewing !!!
