It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas in my world [67 days btw]! This could be because of my Vintage Holiday quilt!!! I finished it [it was one of the things I wanted to finish on my 4th quarter Finish Along list!!] and here it is:
I used my precious fabrics to make this one. Deb Strain snowflake fabrics with several different plaids (some were lovely soft brushed cotton) so it is quite a festive and wintery looking quilt. I love those snowflakes. I have a few scraps leftover so I will hoard those for a rainy day :)
The quilt was an easy one to make - the pattern is fantastic. I am so happy I participated in the quilt-along with Fabric Mutt. This is my first festive quilt and will be putting a hanging sleeve on the back so I can hang it up to help decorate the cottage. Or I could just cuddle under it...
I did stitch in the ditch and straight quilting on this quilt as well as some free motion quilting which is quite brave for me! I limited myself to the white areas around each bauble so I didn't get overwhelmed. I love how the fmq turned out - the baubles sort of puff out because of it so that was an unexpected quilty happiness.
I'm linking my precious Vintage Holiday quilt to Fabric Mutt. Check the link out to see some gorgeous Vintage Holiday creations! I will also link it to TNT Thursday, Aloha Friday, Whoop whoop, Stitch in Time October Finishes and TGIFF for OctoberQuest!
