Christmas Crazy.

Posted on | November 15, 2016 | 11 Comments

A quilt finish!! Yay! I had a pack of turnovers and some leftover fabric from the Crazy Eights range. I did a bit of juggling and was able to make this lap/wall size quilt.

I headed outside for photos but really battled with the wind. This is the best I could do.

It is a really different fabric to use for Christmas.

I did a bit of FMQ all over.

I used a variegated blue thread. Not sure that the colour changes show in the photo.

There was a lovely stripe in the range that was perfect for the binding.

And as you can see, I had a bit of fun with the backing fabric.

All in all, a good finish with limited fabric.

Hope your week is travelling well.

Cheers, Karen

  • Rachaeldaisy says: This is a wonderful quilt!! You're so good at finishing quilts! It's a great pattern for showing off those fabrics, it's pretty but bold at the same time. I think you did a great job with the photos, the wind can can make taking quilt photos into an adventure.

  • Mary @ Fleur de Lis Quilts says: Hmm, unusual colors for Christmas, but still Christmas-y in feeling. And anything goes these days. I saw black ornaments last year and was impressed at how good they looked. Just goes to show that it's the feeling and love of the holiday that counts, not the colors. Besides, that blue is gorgeous and works beautifully with the rest of the fabrics. Such a pretty quilt!
