I'm just getting around to showing some of my Christmas projects. This was a Christmas quilt I made for my brothers family for Christmas. I grew up in a big family, so we have always rotated who we give gifts to. I'm starting to feel a little unoriginal giving quilts. I guess as long as I'm not disappointing anyone, I'm okay with unoriginal.
I cannot remember where I first saw this pattern, but I loved it. It's called Bonne Maman, which means grandma in French--(I just learned that). It was inspired by the crocheted granny squares.
I was going for a Christmas quilt, but I wasn't sure if it was totally clear, so I used this cute tree print to make sure there was no confusion.
I quilted with loopy cursive e's or l's. I do like quilting this pattern, it's pretty easy and flows so well. Plus, you end up with a pretty soft and crinkly quilt once it's washed.
Candy cane stripe binding also makes it more Christmas-y.
