Christmas Quilt Finish

I love holiday quilts. I have never made one! I decided it was time.

I wanted something fun, simple and with traditional colors. I think this quilt fits those things. Sorry for the dark pictures. I forgot to get photos until it was almost dark. Our snow won't last long!

I see lots of Christmas quilts in this design and I love them :) I bought some 1/4 yard cuts from Fort Worth Fabric Studio of this cute line, Home For The Holidays, by Riley Blake Designs. I was determined to not use any solid white in this quilt. I use so much white that I'm getting bored with it. For the back I used the main print in white (there's that white again!) and added scraps to the left side.

 I love how it turned out. I only have one disappointment. Half way through the piecing, I realized I had figured way wrong with my blocks. It ended up much smaller than I'd wanted. Only 47 x 60. I was going to put it in my store but decided it's big enough for the grand kids to enjoy next Christmas :)

I have other fabrics to make 3 more Christmas quilts. I plan to work on them throughout the year instead of waiting until the last minute. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great idea to work on them through the year. It turned out really, really cute.

  2. What a bummer that you were hoping for this one to finish out a bit bigger. I am glad you plan to keep it around for use next year, anyway - the prints are just so cheerful! I hope you enjoy the process of making ahead of time with your next 3 Christmas quilts. :)

  3. I love how bright and cheerful it is. Good idea to keep it. :)

  4. What a lovely Christmas quilt with the perfect snowy background, it couldn't be better! :-)

  5. Very pretty quilt. I think we need seasonal quilts.

  6. Christine, your Christmas quilt turned out so cute! I am glad you are keeping this one to enjoy with your family. It will make the holidays seem cozier!
    Did you redesign your header? It looks great!

  7. What an adorable quilt - I can just see you all tucked up inside with a hot chocolate all ready for Santa to arrive! I sooo want to make a Christmas quilt too, I think they just look so festive sitting on the couch in place of the usual ones (or if you are like me there are like the usual 10 ahahaha!).
