Santa is DONE!

Last night about 8:00, Vince was watching an interesting story on The History Channel about Disneyworld and I grabbed this quilt and sat down to work on the binding and watch the show with him. Shortly after midnight, it was finished. It’s kinda bright but I love it!

This quilt resulted from having found this fabric at Block by Block in Carthage, MO while doing a book signing back in September. The fabric is part of the Peppermint Christmas line by Red Rooster.

Then I found this border print at The Christmas Cloth Store while shopping on the internet.

That’s what I cut up and used for the outer border.

The quilt is about 90″ x 90″ as I recall and I’m so happy to have it finished and have at least one new Christmas quilt on a bed this year.

    Congratulations! It’s so bright and happy it will make any guest happy to spend Christmas in your home – that is if that elaborate menu plan doesn’t have them already moving in for the winter.

    I love it! I think it was Vicky who said last year that one of her goals was to have more “fun” with quilting and for some reason that has stuck with me – why are we sometimes so serious about our quilts? I’ve been adding “fun” bits and pieces to my quilts this past year. Last year I probably would not have considered that fabric or border fabric, but I look at things differently now. Why not!? Don’t get me wrong, I still love the “serious” quilts, but with so much FUN fabric out there – it is nice to find a creative way to work them into our quilts!

    Judy, the quilt is beautiful, and I really appreciate you letting us know the designer of the pantograph.
    I made a christmas quilt this month, and it will be given to my oldest daughter this weekend at our family party as a surprise gift.
    Merry Christmas from south Louisiana where the temperature is back to 70.
