Christmas Quilts - Vintage Holiday Fabrics

It's Christmas in July here!

Michael Miller Fabrics sent over a box of their new fabric line, Vintage Holiday, and it is so cute! What's not to love: snowmen, gingerbread, and candy canes! Not to mention the added touch of gold metallic accents.

This is the second time I've gotten a panel print and I wanted to feature it on the quilt top this time. (Last time I used the panels as part of the backing). I made a few mock ups with flying geese and friendship stars, but then I remembered I designed the Holiday Lights blocks as part of Quiltmas last year. And what do you know, they were the perfect size.

A row of Holiday Lights above and below the snowman panel and a few borders later, I had a quilt top!

One perk of using a panel print...the quilt top comes together in a snap!

I quilted with my go-to serpentine stitch about an inch apart. I debated on using white or black thread, but ultimately chose white. There is quilt a bit of contrast against the black fabric, but I didn't want to take away from the snowman with a dark thread. It works in the end though!

If striped binding is an option, I will use it 100% of the time! Striped bindings are my favorite. ;)

The Holiday Lights quilt block is now available for purchase. You can find it here.
