Here it is! All finished! My very own Christmas quilt. It was touch and go as to whether I would get it finished with all the Christmas hoopla but I did! I really, really love it. I strung a string on the barn wall and Mum helped me pin it up for its photo op this morning after it stopped raining. I should have taken a picture of Webster as he was quite intrigued by the whole process. Funny dog!
The quilts stats are as follows. The fabric is largely Fruitcake by Basic Grey for Moda. I used 2 charm packs and a load of samples from the "by the pound" sale at my fabulous local quilt shop. I also used some yardage bought in the after Christmas sales for the borders and bindings and a solid from the stash. I have a lot of that dark red and I end up using it a fair bit as it is very flexible colour-wise. The back, which I am pleased with is a mixture of leftover charms and samples, along with some Christmas snowmen. The green plaid cotton is a thrift store score from Mum. Way to go, Mum! I stippled it all over in a meandering squiggly pattern. Happiness in a quilt. Husband gave it a test drive this morning early before everyone was awake. It worked well for early morning snuggles while getting updated on the world according to CNN or whatever else he was looking at so early in the morning.
Happy Christmas eve-eve!
