The annual Cozy Comforts Bake Sale and Bazaar is tomorrow, though, and I'd promised to make a Christmas quilt, so this needed to get finished.
Some of the fabrics were scraps given to me by Cozy Comforts from fabric donated to them, and then I filled it out with some fabric from my stash. It's a good thing this quilt was already promised to them because otherwise, I'd be so tempted to keep it. I love how it turned out.
I'm a real sucker for gold embellishments on quilt fabric. It just makes the colors look so rich.
I think my favorite thing about the quilt is that it's a Christmas quilt, but none of the fabrics are "Christmas" fabrics.
I used the same piecing techniques as the Scraps for Jax quilt I made in the spring.
see that post here. The finished size of the quilt is about 43 inches by 43 inches, so it's perfect for a baby quilt, throw or wall hanging. I machine quilted it in the white stripes.
I didn't have a large enough red piece for the whole back...and a white back would be a little boring, so I used the white and broke it up with some red stripes.
I was also motivated to get the Christmas decorations out and the living room cleaned up, so I could take some nice pictures of it. I also took some pictures to give you a little tour of our Christmas decorations, but those might have to wait until tomorrow since I've got to go wrap our Christmas Books up and then go deliver the quilts.
