Although I started this quilt in the fall of 2010, it has been in my WIPs pile since then. I got most of the top put together that first year. Then last winter I was determined to finish it, but just after I started quilting it, my quilting foot broke. By the time I ordered a new one, the holidays had come and gone. Again, the quilt went back into the WIP pile.
I finally pulled it out the other day, and finished it up in just a few hours. I am so happy with how it turned out. The pattern is from the Moda Bake Shop several years ago and uses just one layer cake. The fabric I used is Kate Spain’s “Fa La La.”
I tried something new this time around. I had never used flannel before, but thought a snuggly Christmas quilt was the perfect time to try it out. I love how it turned out. It gives the quilt nice weight and you might find me underneath this quilt for the next few months.
I added a strip of leftover edging fabric to the back just to break things up a little bit. The finished size of the quilt is 45″ x 58″. Although it is quick and easy, I don’t think I will use this pattern again. There are so many other fun things I want to make first.
I can’t wait to snuggle up under this with Liam and read Christmas books by the tree. How many days left until December?
