Christmas Quilt

I’ve had a Kate Spain “Flurry” panel hanging around ever since January.  I bought it on clearance after Christmas, pieced the top over the summer, and finally got around to finishing the actual quilt, just in time for Christmas!

I cut up each of the little prints/pictures within the panel, mapped it all out on paper so I would know what sizes to cut the sashing, and then went to work.  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out, but it’s not as cool as I’d hoped it would be.  I’m honestly not quite sure how to use a panel.  I suppose I could have left it whole in the middle of the quilt and then put a couple of borders around it.  It would have been more of a wall hanging size, though.

Still, I love the colors, and I’m happy to have a Christmas quilt to bring out every year.  I used some of the snowflake fabric on the back.  I also found that on clearance, and snowflakes are my favorite Christmas theme, so it was perfect!

I love Kate Spain’s “Joy” fabrics this year.  I already have two charm packs, and I’m hoping to pick up a little yardage after Christmas when everything goes on sale.  I wouldn’t mind having a second Christmas quilt for our family room or the sunroom.

Comments

  1. I love the colours! It is really beautiful! Well done!

  2. It’s lovely – maybe it isn’t as you imagine and that’s why you’re a little disappointed? I think it was a great way to use a panel.

    • That might be it– this panel was divided into squares, so it seemed logical to cut it up, but in retrospect it would have made a nice wall hanging, too.

  3. I love this. Those color combos are my favorite. I am a fan of the red, aqua and bright green for Christmas vs the old school red, green and gold.

  4. I love what you did and it looks very festive!
