Riley Blake Designs Project Tour- Warm Wishes- Little Christmas Village Quilt Along

Good Morning!  Today I'm sharing an exciting, new, free quilt along that I'm hosting!  I'm using the new collection by Simple Simon and Company called Warm Wishes.


This beautiful collection has a lovely muted color palette and gorgeous prints.  It is stunning!




You can see the Storyboard for Warm Wishes- here.

I chose this collection for our new quilt along!  It is a sequel to my Little Village quilt along and it is called Little Christmas Village!  I'm so excited for this!

Let me present the Little Christmas Village Quilt!


This quilt features the same houses that were in my Little Village quilt but with fun, new barn quilt designs and also a lovely Christmas tree border.  The Little Christmas Village quilt measures 87 1/2" x 87 1/2".  I'm really exciting to start making this quilt with you all!

Here is the schedule we will be following:
