Vintage Holiday quilt-a-long

Before a quilter can start a new quilt-a-long they should make an attempt to catch up on other quilt-a-longs they have started...right?

Remember this one? That I embraced enthusiastically late last year...the Blogger's BOM...

There are twelve blocks in a month...and I have done nothing on this since the beginning of the year....block 12 is due to be posted on the 25th of this a big spurt of sewing is required to  catch up...well may be a small spurt to start with would suffice :)

Block 5 "Sands of time" by QuiltDad

Block 6 Star block by Diary of a Quilter

Quite pretty together I now my homework is done I can move start on the new Quilt-a-long Vintage Holiday...blogged about here.

My fabric stack for this project looks like this...

I am not sure if I will use all of them, but it gives you the idea of the palette the quilt will be made from.

Block 1...see the scissor print, I bought that as a fat quarter from Big W(Aussie variety store)...fancy that!!

Block 2

These little christmas ornaments are going to look very cute, 2 down...10 to go!


  1. I'm impressed you found the scissor print at Big W!! Your blocks look great. You're probably right about finishing a few things before starting a new QAL.. I should've done that... :)

  2. Your Vintage Holiday blocks look great! Once you get started, many of them come together very quickly. Good luck getting caught up!
