a patchwork christmas quilt


This last week I started sewing a patchwork Christmas quilt with some of my new favorite Christmas fabrics, Alpine Wonderland and Cherry Christmas. 


I also added in some basics and pretty florals.  I love how simple and quick it was to put the top together.  



I think I'll add a border or two, and then on to sandwiching and quilting I go.


I've also been decorating and have added some new vintage and vintage inspired Christmas finds to my decorations.  My favorite find is a White Christmas tree I purchased off Craigslist for only $10.   Oh, nothing is more exciting to me than to get a great deal on something I've really been wanting!  :)



 Red and Aqua ornaments!  :)


I found a pretty red and white vintage tree skirt at a thrift store right after I got my tree!  It was meant to be. hee hee!!

My sweet Sophie loves our new tree and all the ornaments!!  :)

Some vintage class ornaments I found this week-end!  I think I'll do a wreath or hang them from a frame.

 A couple bottle brush trees and a gnome glass ornament from World Market!

I hope everyone is having a lovely morning!!

Hugs,

  4. The white tree is gorgeous and I love all your decorations. I remember when I had my first apartment so many years ago, there was a little 5 & 10 cent (!) store across the street and I bought ornaments like some of those for very little money. Wish I had kept them! Your quilt is gorgeous!
