I finished it!!!! I am so happy how it turned out.
This was my inspiration quilt that I saw it on Moda Bake Shop.
I loved it and wanted to make it, but was wondering when and with what material.
I kept trying to think a way to do a Christmas quilt using Moda’s Basic Grey line called Blizten.
And decided to combine the two. I used a white with small dots for my light colors.
I was going to try to do stripes of colors like the quilt I had seen (ie. red in one column; green in the next, etc). When I had finished the blocks and laid them out on my floor, I didn’t like it. So I moved around blocks to get something that I liked much better. Becky was a great help.
With this being my seconds quilt, I am still learning. A few things that I have been surprised about is that as I complete each step – piecing top, machine quilting and then sewing. I love the quilt more and more with each step. After finishing the blocks, I was worried that my light material had not been a good choice. As I got all the blocks together, I like it more and more. LOVE the final quilt.
Thanks to my best lookin quilt holder ever – Owen.
Had fun with sewing stars onto almost every block in different squares…
SEW excited with how it looks when finished.
Up next …. pillows for Becky for Christmas
