Toy Drum Block {Vintage Christmas Sew Along}

"Come, they told me
Pa rum pum pum pum..."

When I was a kid, my mom would turn off the television in the morning and start playing music on our record player.  When Christmas time started, she had a record that had traditional songs and drummer boy was the first song that played.  My brother, who was non-verbal at the time, would stop and just sit close to the speaker and listen to it...a very rare moment for him to be sitting still. 
I love how a project can bring back a memory like this!!!

I finished my Toy Drum Block for the Vintage Christmas Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop
The Vintage Christmas book by Lori Holt is another It's Sew Emma collaboration and there are a lot of great projects with quite a number of blocks, like the Candy Swirl Block I made a few weeks ago!

I decided to keep going with my reproduction print theme that I have been running with the last few months.  

And can we talk about the little toy band leader?  How perfect is THIS fabric!

I can hear the collective sarcastic gasps with the coordinating rolling eyes out in the universe because I made this block into a pillow cover.  Or maybe it's just one of my own boys I'm hearing?

I used this gingham check for the backing with a hidden zipper.

A simple older blue leaf print for binding from my stash.

Quilt Project Finish:
Measures: 15"x 15"
Pattern: Toy Drum Block from Vintage Christmas Book by Bee Lori
Fabric: Reproduction Vintage Fabrics, Kona White, Joann Fabrics

My youngest suggested it would make a cute pillow for his bedroom at Christmas time.  
I think he's right!
