New Quilt!

A new Christmas quilt is hanging in the basement this year. I put this one together the week of Thanksgiving and Ramona quilted it for me so I could get it hung while I was decorating. This is a pattern from Kati Cupcake. It was a free download off of the Henry Glass website, they had used Amy's fabric but I thought it would be really fun out of Christmas fabrics. It would be cute out of just about anything and it goes together really fast. I opted out on doing the applique like she had done. It just didn't fit with the fabric I was using, but afterwards I thought it might be kind of fun to applique wool stars in the big setting squares. That is something I can add later if I decide to take on that challenge. I used several different lines in it. A good part of it is Lynette Anderson's Scandanavian Christmas. There's a little of FaLaLaLa from Moda, some Hometown from Moda and bits and pieces of one of Red Rooster's Christmas lines. Everything coordinated really well. The backing is a plaid from the RR line.

I chose a varigated thread and had it quilted with an all over holly and berry pattern. I love the results of it. I'm sure this one will be hanging around the White house for many years to come.
