It’s a little bit weird working on Christmas projects in July in Florida! Today’s high is forecast to be 93 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s hot, beachy weather! Thanks to Jill Howarth’s new fabric line for Riley Blake Designs, Way Up North, though, I’ve been dreaming of cooler holiday days and Christmas!
Isn’t it dreamy? This quilt is a super quick and easy sew. I just mixed straight cuts and fussy cuts in 6″ and 3″ squares into twenty 12″ blocks. I was pretty haphazard in the arrangement to give it a scrappy look. I pieced the blocks in 5 rows of 4 for a finished quilt size of 48″X60″.
David of Quilting by David did a beautiful job with the quilting. The pattern is called “Christmas Ornaments”.
I’m really sad that I have to pack this quilt up for five months! It’ll be so nice to have it ready when December rolls around, though. I always feel like I wait to the last minute to get holiday sewing done, and then I run out of time. I think maybe I’ll sew up a few more Christmas things this month!
