Everything is more fun with a friend, so I hope you will join me for the Vintage Christmas 2 quilt-a-long starting November 1, 2021. This is such a fun holiday quilt pattern, and I can’t wait to sew along with you!

I am going to break it up into four weeks, so we can get be ready for the holiday season. But of course, you can go at your own pace! Make sure to share your progress pictures using #vintagechristmas2qal so we can all see your work!

I’ll be posting my progress regularly on Instagram and Facebook so make sure to follow along with me there. And I’ll share little tips as we go in my IG and FB stories, so make sure to check each day for updates!

Quilt-a-Long Schedule:

November 1: Tree Blocks

November 8: Truck Blocks

November 15: Pinwheels and Holly

November 22: Sashing and borders

November 29: Assemble Top, Baste, Quilt, & Bind!

  • 4-1/2 yards – white (background)

Fabric used: I used a mix of Sweetwater Christmas Prints for Moda, their new line, Red Barn Christmas, is perfect for this project!

Pattern Level: Beginner-Intermediate

This entire quilt is traditionally pieced! It does have several pieces, so I think it’s a beginner-intermediate level pattern. However, the pattern does include step-by-step graphic illustrations and written instructions, and you’re welcome to email me if you have any questions at all!

So I say if you like it, go for it!

To join in, just follow me on Instagram and Facebook and post any progess pics using #vintagechristmas2qal

Hi friends! I have a fun new cross stitch pattern to release today! This one is my Vintage Christmas Cross Stitch pattern and it’s reflective of my Vintage Christmas Quilt Pattern of course!

I changed up the trees a bit and added some fun pinwheel sashing too!

I used 14 count white Aida with two strands of DMC floss. But you can substitute in any fabric and floss you prefer.

Click here to get the Vintage Cross Stitch Pattern!

Materials Needed:

  • Cloth (14 count white Aida)
  • Floss (DMC)
  • Size 26 tapestry needle
  • Optional: Embroidery hoop and needle minder 

The stitch count for Vintage Christmas is 127w by 138h. 

The sample is stitched on 14 count white Aida cloth with DMC floss. If you stitch with the recommended fabric, the finished piece will be approximately 9″w x 9.5″h.
