Hello and happy Friday! I’m so excited to share this quilt with you today. I know Christmas is still a little ways off, but now is the time to start holiday sewing, right? Anyway…this is one of those quilts that I knew I was going to make early in June–it’s just taken a little while to get it finished up!
You might remember that in June I released a super fun Layer Cake quilt along with a tutorial for putting it all together (yes, all of the blocks can be made from just one Layer Cake). My Hometown quilt is one of my favorites, and as soon as I finished I started thinking about how fun it would be to make a Christmas version.
I finally got it cut out a couple of weeks ago and sewed block pieces together in-between doing some secret Quilt Market sewing. Then just last week I finished the blocks and started setting them together this week.
For sashing I used the green dot from the Bonnie & Camille collection Little Ruby. It added such a fun contrast to the blocks and backgrounds! The blocks and outer border are pieced from the Sweetwater Holly’s Tree Farm collection while the sashing posts, setting triangles, inner border and backing are from their The Cookie Exchange group.
I’m just a little bit giddy about this one and will be sending it off for quilting right away. I’ll be sure to share as soon as it gets back! The pattern is available in paper and PDF in my Etsy shop. Also…what is even more fun is that I still have scraps left over (I had cut my Layer Cake squares from left-overs of a Fat Quarter Bundle) and have some more fun projects in mind. These collections aren’t readily available any more, but this quilt would be a lot of fun in the Sweetwater Hometown Christmas Edition Layer Cake or for a more modern look, the Merry Merry by Kate Spain Layer Cake!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend…thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Quilting!
