Happy New Year! I cannot believe December is over! I fully expected to post all my finishes from 2015 before the New Year...but I didn't. The good news is, I have several finished quilts to share over the next few days (or weeks, as it usually is). The first one being a Christmas Quilt. I hope you will forgive me for bringing back Christmas in January.
I started this quilt a year ago with Lori Holt. She hosted an Instagram quilt-along last December. I had the funnest time putting this quilt together. It's so different than what I usually sew, definitely cuter. Most of the blocks are in her Quilty Fun book, but several were freebies she shared on Instagram.
The original quilt was meant to be a wall hanging, but I made extra blocks so we could use it as a throw blanket.
Quilted in an all-over cross-hatch pattern.
The backing might be my favorite part...it's so soft! We like to pretend those deer are actually reindeer.
Candy Cane Stripe binding is a must on a Christmas Quilt.
