It's time for Sew Cal Gal's 2011 Christmas Quilt Show and I've decided to make an entry. This year I would like to share my Christmas quilt .......
This quilt was so fun to make! It was the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Mystery BOM quilt 2010/2011. With only working on one block a month there was absolutely no pressure to get it done. Many of you made the journey with me through the blocks each month trying to guess what would appear as the blocks were made. DH gave me the finishing kit and backing for Christmas so it all matches front to back (not many of my quilts do - lol). I didn't do the quilting on this but took it to my local long arm quilter and she did a beautiful job. As of this last Saturday, it is out on the couch for everyone to cuddle under.
Here are a few of my favorite blocks I made over several months:
I so enjoyed working with all of the Kate Spain fabrics. It was especially fun to fussy cut the pieces like the windows in the house. Fat Quarter Shop always sends more than enough fabric with each block and the instructions were so easy to follow.
Many thanks to Darlene for organizing yet another fun event and for getting so many wonderful sponsors. Make sure to check out the Christmas Quilt Show for many more beautiful Christmas and Winter creations.
