Hey guys! I’m so excited to be releasing my very first quilt pattern! It’s called Vintage Christmas and hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do!



I mean who doesn’t love heading out to look for that perfect Christmas tree? This one was super fun to make, and fairly quick to put together too! I mixed a fun vintage truck with some super cute tree blocks.



The tree unit in the truck was probably the most challenging part, but it’s still a fairly easy and straight forward pattern to make.


For the front of the quilt I used a mix of fabrics from the Mistletoe Lane fabric by Bunny Hill Lane for Moda. This line is actually from last year but I know that Stitches N Giggles Etsy shop has some left! And it’s on clearance too!

For the backside I used the white snowflake print from Sweetwater’s Cookie Exchange fabric.


I went with a festive red binding as well because I love red binding! Check out the fabric requirements below to see what you’ll need to make this fun quilt!


And since it’s only July, you still have time to get this made in time for Christmas! Double Yay!


Finished quilt size: 69” x 74”

  1. Erica,
    I belong to several Quilt groups on FB and someone just finished this Quilt and said it gave so many headaches she was glad it was finally finished. I love your pattern but am not the best quilter. I was wondering if you had any suggestions to make it easier or hints as my daughter loves this pattern. You may email me @katie.kates54@yahoo.com – thank you so much

    1. Hi Kaye,
      Oh no! I’m so sorry they had troubles with it. I haven’t had anyone complain that it was difficult to follow, quite the opposite. I think the pattern is fairly easy to read and there are a lot of photos to help along the way. Did she mention anything specific that I might be able to help with? I think the only more difficult portion is the tree in the bed of the truck. That is only because they’re kind of smaller pieces. Otherwise it’s pretty easy sewing in my opinion, but I’d be happy to help if there was something specific she pointed out! 🙂

    1. Hi Alicia,
      I’m so sorry you’re having difficulty! If you send me an email with your questions I’ll be happy to help. I want to make sure the patterns are as easy to follow as possible. And hopefully the step-by-step diagrams will help as well 🙂

  2. The last twenty years of my husbands life he drove only red pickup trucks! When I saw this pattern, I had to make it! My family and I love it! It reminds everyone of Edd and all his red trucks!

  3. We had a red 1973 Datsun pick up truck therefore I had to have this pattern. Finished the floppy, need to get quilted. The instructions were great especially appreciated the pressing directions – spot on.
