Those three little letters pretty much sum up my feelings about this quilt. I loved working on it. I love the way it turned out. It puts me in the Christmas spirit!
After making my advent calendar and Christmas tree skirt, I had a collection of holiday fabrics. I sent them to my Sew Beautiful Bee friends, who rocked it (as I knew they would). Special thanks to Lee, Cherie, Elizabeth, Emily, Brooke, Megan, Angela, AnneMarie, Kati, and Cara for these awesome blocks.
I sashed their blocks with white, then added a 3-inch scrappy border, and then another 2-inch border.
Happy and festive.
It's hard to tell, but I quilted with white thread in an all-over meandering stipple.
For the backing I used this Christmas tree flannel by Doodlebug Design for Riley Blake. Cute and soft (and on sale).
I can't imagine this quilt without the candy cane binding (tutorial from Kati). It took a bit more time, but I'm really happy with the result.
It finished at about 50x62. Only problem: Am I really going to be able to put this up in a month? I guess we'll see!
What about you? In the holiday spirit yet??
