Vintage Christmas Samper Update & Tutorial

I have been working on my Vintage Christmas Sampler since the middle of July. I have 14 blocks sewn and completed. I have 6 more that I need to make and 10 9 tutorials that need to be written.

Here is a look at my progress so far:

1. Indian Mats (paper pieced)   2. Wonky Barn Fence   3. Christmas Tree   4. LeMoyne Star   5. Oatmeal Cookie Variation   6. Ohio Star Variation   7. Radiating Diamonds   8. Log Cabin   9. Blueberry Pie   10. Wreath   11. Chevrons  12. 9 patch   13. Old Snowflake (paper pieced)   14. Stocking   15. Snail Trail (not pictured)

The tutorials for 10 9 of the completed blocks can all be found here on my Vintage Christmas Sampler page.

You may be asking yourself why Snail Trail Block is not pictured…well that is because I haven’t done it yet!  You may also be asking why I keep crossing out the number 10 and writing in the number 9, well…when I posted yesterday about my awesome giveaway from SassyPacks I mentioned that Vicki loved my sampler and had planned on making one of her own. I asked her if she wanted to do one of the tutorials for one of the vintage blocks on her site and I would use her tutorial to create my block using my vintage fabrics.  She said yes and today you can see her tutorial for the Snail Trail block up on the SassyBlog!

Check out how great her block turned out in the updated fabrics – and doesn’t that chocolate look yummy!

Go look at the tutorial and don’t forget to enter the giveaway – you can win a layer cake of O’ Tinsel Town and maybe start your own Christmas Sampler Quilt!

I will be making this block over the weekend using Vicki’s tutorial and I will post a picture on Monday of how it looks in my vintage fabrics – I am excited to get to follow a tutorial instead of write one!  Will you be making this block?

Have a great weekend!
