Vintage Holiday

As you know, my rule for the year is to start as many quilts as I want.

I showed you this quilt pattern in a magazine on December 10. I wanted to make it, but there were other quilts I wanted to make more, and I did not want to overwhelm myself with too many projects.

Well, I did promise to make a small quilt each month, and I thought the small quilt project would be a great way to make more red and white quilts.

It snowed last night and they have been showing pictures of people sled riding on the news.

Today, I discovered that the Project Quilting challenge is to make a project with red, white, and/or blue, so I decided to meet all those things with one simple quilt.

I am using fabric, fusible applique, instead of felt. I've cut out all the red pieces and placed them, and just have to do the white pieces now. It doesn't look like a lot of pieces, but when you cut them out, there are quite a lot. I think I will quilt down the pieces instead of trying to go around each one individually.

I love your rule for the year!! "MAKE AS MANY QUILTS AS I WANT!" This pillow is on my to do list as well. I bought the felt for it but it's not a priority just now.
