vintage holiday quilt along {and a giveaway}

Happy Monday, everyone!

How was your weekend? We were busy, in a good way, enjoying the beautiful summer weather and having lots of fun family time. And thus, I did not get any sewing done, none at all, all weekend long. I did some plotting and fabric petting, though. Do you want to see?


I've gathered together this delicious stack of fabric for my next quilt Vintage Holiday by Camille Roskelley. I was so glad when Heidi at Fabric Mutt decided to start a Vintage holiday quilt along.

 Fabric Mutt

I love the idea of making this gorgeous Christmas quilt now, way before the rush of the holiday season starts, and having some friends along for the journey makes it even better.

So, what do you think? Would you like to join? You can find more information here and join the Flickr group here.

And, to sweeten things up, Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop offered a $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky winner. Just leave a comment on this post and you're in (international entries welcome). The giveaway will be open until Saturday, July 28th and I will announce the winner on Sunday, July 29th.

Good luck, and have a wonderful day, friends. Svetlana

THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING. THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

  4. Those are wonderful color choices! (But oh no...I was petting some fabric earlier but I wouldn't have thought to say that...now I won't be able to touch any of it without feeling like I'm treating it like a pet!)

    I'm not 100% sure if I'm going to be able to do this QAL, as I've already signed up for one starting soon and I feel like Im missing summer.
