Vintage Christmas by Lori Holt Week 7

Image
The Fat Quarter Shop invited me to join their new Vintage Christmas Sew Along, which is based around the new Christmas book by  Lori Holt. I couldn't resist! I love all her patterns and every book Lori has written you can find then at the  Fat Quarter Shop (click and see her other books)! Don’t forget to order your Alphabitties when you order your book.
Lori Holt - Bee in my bonnet - see what she has going on!



Vintage Christmas  is a great book for beginners to experts alike who love to sew!  So many great blocks to sew year after year! The blocks can be used for quilts and gifts (Mug Rugs, Bags, Tablerunners, and Pillows to name a few)!

Week 7 Block - Toy Train


The fabric is Cozy Christmas by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. It was released a couple of years ago but you can still find it at the Fat Quarter Shop. The thing I love about Christmas fabric is it never goes out of style.

Thank you for stopping by please take a look at the others blocks!
