It’s a Relatively Quick Project and Easy Enough for Beginners!
A sweet vintage truck bringing home the tree adds a delightfully nostalgic touch to this charming Christmas quilt. Small prints, polka dots and a candy cane binding add to its lighthearted and festive personality.
Strip-pieced nine-patch blocks are set on point to showcase the raw edge appliqued truck. Run a machine blanket stitch or zig zag around the applique shapes for a more finished look.
The 68″ x 74″ quilt, designed by Podunk Pretties, is perfect for cuddling under while watching Christmas movies.
The matching throw pillow is a perfect companion for the quilt. Or make one up to give to someone special. It will be charming in your favorite Christmas fabrics.
Stitch up the easy pillow cover using scraps leftover from the quilt or from your stash. The envelope back makes it easy to remove and put away once the holidays are over.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
