The holidays sneak up on most of us, however, quilters are a different story! We need weeks and sometimes months to get our creations together. I know I have spent many a Christmas eve stitching the last bits on a binding or wrapping in a fury in the middle of the night.
Moira created this elegant modern Christmas quilt and I love it. It is constructed with very non-traditional colors in grey and mustard. I have a thing for mustard and was drooling when she dropped it off.
I used my favorite Quilter's dream blend batting. This gives some really nice body to the quilt. It doesn't tear when I roll it on like other cheaper battings and just really holds up well with time. The panto I chose is called Quirky. It is also a modern panto and gives the quilt a bit of a 50's feel. The design looks to me like glass tree ornaments.
Thanks for letting me play with your quilt Moira!
This is the progress of my own Christmas quilting. It's taking me a little longer than usual to finish up ... can you see why!
And just as I thought the coast was clear, Casey found a perch. I hope to have this guy quilted and bound before December. Wish me luck!
