Vintage Holiday Quilt Holly's Christmas Tree farm


Thought I would share with you what I have been working on ...

Vintage Holiday Quilt

I have been locked up in my sewing room making this quilt so that my quilter can quilt this for me before Christmas.  Just finished it this morning :-D

I made this quilt with Holly's Tree farm fabric.  It was love at first sight when I saw this fabric and just knew I had to make this quilt for my daughter Holly for Christmas. Won't she be surprised !!!
The pattern is Vintage Holiday by thimble blossoms

Here is a close-up of some of the ornaments I made for this quilt.....

and this is a close-up picture of the sashing & border fabric

I also celebrated my birthday  with family last Sunday and these were gifts from my daughters..

Just love this personalized picture for my sewing room !

I have been wanting one of these carts for sometime now.
Now I can keep my cutting area clear, I feel so organized  :-D

Wishing everyone a Very Happy Thanksgiving !!

Viola and around the house...

Sharing a finish with you today.


I finally figured out the stems for these blocks and did not appliqué like the pattern said.
I paper pieced them like Thelma had suggested . This top took me forever since I have had a head cold for the last 2 1/2 weeks.  Finally starting to feel better

My quilt top finishes at 40" x 40" and I have ordered the cream with cherries fabric for the backing and the green  polka dot for the binding .

While working on Viola our friend installed hardwood floors in our kitchen

and of course I had to get a new rug for the Kitchen Nook :-D

 My Grandson Nico is growing SO fast.  He just turned 4 months old .

We are getting rain in California today and lots of snow in the Sierras .
It is much needed with this horrible 4 year drought we have been having .
