My Mom's Christmas Quilt


I have been working on this baby for 2 months!
Pin It
 And she is finally finished!
I made this quilt for my mother and gave it to her as an early Christmas gift, so she could display it throughout the month.


My favorite part is most definitely the Candy Cane Stripe edge!


And the Polka Dot backing!


Okay, who am I kidding, I love the WHOLE DANG THING!
 I love that it is a modge podge of various Christmas collections and prints, and that it looks like Christmas exploded onto this quilt!

In fact, I had a really hard time saying goodbye to this one, I totally wanted to keep it for myself. 


I am actually thinking about making the exact same quilt for myself....is that so weird?   Making two of the same quilt?  Let me know if you think I am off my rocker!

Would you like to make one too?
Because all the Christmas Prints in our shop are on sale RIGHT NOW!
Some as low as $5.50/ yard.  Find them HERE!

You will only need 1/4 yard of each print. 
For this quilt I cut a bunch of 9" squares from my 1/4 yards, and then cut them up using THIS technique from Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew....she is awesome-ness. 

I sewed them together, and it turned out so cute! I can't wait to get started on my next one.

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of christmas. See the link below for more info.

This is the sweetest quilt. It is always hard to hand them over when you have fallen in love with them.
At least you can visit it at your moms. Lol

Love this quilt, beautiful way to use scraps or to go all out. With each block needing 1/4th a yard of fabric, how big was your quilt? Block across and such, because I'm thinking of making a full size for myself :)
