Behold: the Kitschy Christmas quilt. The inspiration for this quilt first came from this Anthropologie Quilt. I’d been thinking about it for a few weeks when I decided (on Thanksgiving Day) to make a Christmas version using all my scraps left over from last year’s Retro Christmas Quilt. (I used my Accuquilt GO cutter Isosceles Triangle die to cut out this whole quilt in a very short amount of time.)
I’ve been collecting those retro-vintagey fabrics and now my stash is seriously depleted. But I’m okay with that since they’re far better appreciated in a couple of finished quilts than in closet in my basement. The solid greens are Kona’s: Palm (lighter) and Holly.
I also used the last of my Holiday Happy fabric for the back. Perfect.
The perfect thing for my big blank wall during the Christmas season. And I’m well-pleased that I finished it in time for the actual holiday. It even goes well with my throw pillows from Christmases past. (Snowflake here, Circles here, and red and white pillows here.)
And since we’re talking retro-Christmas, Merry Christmas from me (and my little sister) ca. 1978. I’m pretty certain my mom made those gingham dresses. I could have totally used some of that green gingham in this quilt!
