Yes, More Christmas!

Posted on | September 25, 2017 | 11 Comments

I was not quick enough today and missed my chance at taking photos in the sunshine. We seem to be getting only 5 minute bursts in between rain showers. But I understand our farmers still need the rain so that is far more important.

This quilt is a bonus as it is made using the leftover fabric from the Christmas Star quilt that was in my  one before last post.

I only had to add the green and white spot for the sashing.

The layout was kept simple as the fabrics are effective enough on their own. I did the quilting with curves, loops and stars. That works just fine for Christmas.


The backing and binding was the same green and white spot fabric. Love the way it shows up the quilting.

This fabric range has been delightful. As well as making complete quilts from it I have also used it in part in several other designs. And, yes, all were Christmas quilts.


I got myself into gear last week and sandwiched quite a few quilts. I really must not let my pile of flimsies built up so much. Although that is easier said than done as I have already made two more tops before getting any of the quilting done!! I do need to focus!!

Have a great week. Cheers, Karen

  • Fiona says: oh please send rain this way - desperate for some! Love the second quilt and that sashing is so useful.... I do love spots ... Hugz
  • Anita says: Have to agree about the rain...the farmers still do need it. Our weather in the west is the same as yours right now....Mr. Sun can't make his mind up if he wants to peek out from behind the clouds or not! lol Beautiful quilt you have made, I just adore the fabrics. Very cute.
  • Elaine/MuddlingThrough says: What a very effective quilt and I love that it's made out of leftovers! We quilters do hate to waste, don't we?
  • Linda King says: Look at you go! So ready for Christmas.
  • Christine M says: Lovely finish Karen.
  • Mary @ Fleur de Lis Quilts says: I'm not sure which I prefer: a new project with new fabric or a new project with left over fabric. Both are pretty fantastic. After all, who doesn't love new fabic and who doesn't love a "free" quilt? At least the world can say that we're easy to please! You made a smart decision with the green dot fabric. It really pulls the whole quilt together and shows off the quilting beatuifully! Maybe we all should invest in a bolt or two of this stuff. Oh no! I'm back on my fabric diet and can't buy anything. (I don't know why I put myself through these foolish ideas.) I'm ready to begin a fun project but have a couple of committed projects going on. So I guess I'll get to that. Love your bonus Christmas quilt. Well done! Mary
  • Preeti says: When the fabric is so cute, it is a good idea to stick to a simple design - just like you did. A lovely Christmas quilt!!!
  • Nancy @ Grace and Peace Quilting says: What a great bonus quilt! The quilting fits it just perfect.
