Quilt Archaeology ~ Old Fashioned Christmas ~ Week 3

Welcome to Quilt Archaeology ~ Old Fashioned Christmas ~ Week 3!
From your light print:  Cut (3) 2 7/8" squares ~ crosscut once diagonally.  Also cut (5) 2" squares for Half Square Triangles.

From your green print:  Cut (2) 2" x WOF strips for binding.  Cut (3) 2 7/8" squares ~ crosscut twice diagonally for blocks.  Also cut (5) 2" squares for Half Square Triangles.

Follow the piecing directions from week one.  You can find them here.  Make a total of (3) green pieced Flying Geese units measuring 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" unfinished.  

Thank goodness it's only three blocks!  This is a really busy week for all of us.  After this, we have only a few more blocks to make, and then we can assemble this cutie!  

If you're just finding out about my Old Fashioned Christmas sew-along, it's not too late to join us.  Click here to read more about it.  

Are you following me on Instragram and Facebook (under Heartspun Quilts?)  I try to post new and fun stuff several times a week and you'll see things you don't see on my blog.  I really like it because I can be more interactive there.  So look me up and follow me on Instagram.

This week, I received my sample fabric of my new Cheddar & Chocolate collection!  I've been so anxious to get it and start cutting it up.  I've posted photos of Cheddar & Chocolate this week, and today I will begin piecing one of two new quilts made with it.  Yay!

All of that in between decorating the house and cyber shopping.  In the next few days I will go out and shop the old fashioned way....in the car to the actual store!  It's nice to see the stores all decorated and listen to Christmas music in the car.  Hoping to get my shopping done by Sunday.  

I know you're all busy, too.  Let's make a pact to take some time for ourselves to sew.  So good for our souls, and it helps so much to get away from the hustle and bustle!

Be well......

  1. Pam, is there another way besides copy and paste to print off each week. I do better with pictures in front of me. Thanks.

  3. I haven't pieced any of my blocks yet. I have the blocks cut out for the first two weeks. As soon as I finish making a table runner for my sister, I hope to get started on this beautiful little quilt. Thank you for the pattern.

  4. Thank's for keeping this so simple Pam ~ Definitely doable at this busy time of year.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your two new Cheddar and Chocolate quilts.
