we have managed to pull out the cartons of tucked away christmas treasures. and we've found a most perfect tree to stand grandly, modelling all our memory filled little baubles that we swoon over every year. tom's grandmother's ceramic tree sparkles in the window. our stockings dangle beside the fireplace. and christmas specials are beginning to fill our dvr. so christmas is charging right along. and in that spirit, i thought i'd have a little celebration of sorts in the studio as well. the 12 days of a quilty christmas. and with each day, one quilt be the star.
today is the first day of our quilty little christmas. and our star today is a cheerful and charming little lap quilt. she has some of the beautiful vintage fabrics that i told you about a couple of months ago.....the fabrics an elderly gentleman brought me from his mother's fabric collection. those are interspersed with other fabrics, chosen to create a dreamy vintage look, to remind us of an era when simple moments in life were noticed and appreciated. this little beauty is a lap quilt and measures 38 by 51 inches. she tucks smoothly around like a tight little hug. and for more info, this little beauty is listed in my etsy shop.
so as the holidays burst merrily upon us, i hope we all find the joy!
