Red and Green

I have two finished Christmas projects to show you today! I feel quite good about getting things done on-time this year. Over the weekend I started drafting an ocean waves quilt pattern, with the intention it would become a pillow. I decided on a large block size to accommodate a 20" pillow form and quilted it in grid lines to accentuate the design. 

As you can tell I'm really into red and green solids right now! They look so fresh and crisp. I have a bunch of old quilting books featuring vintage quilt patterns and I couldn't help but be inspired by the traditional Christmas colour's and styles. 

I also finished my radiant star mini quilt! So happy with this :) is it Christmas already so I can hang it up!? Who know's, maybe I'll have time for an all red and white quilt before the season is upon us? p.s. I the measurements for my ocean waves pillow so I will post a tutorial soon, be sure to check back. xo

  4. They're beautiful. Those vintage quilts would fit in well with today's 'modern' quilts.
