Happy Monday! The king-size scrappy log cabin Christmas quilt is complete (wow…try to say that fast five times!). I had forgotten how long it takes to bind a king-size quilt. Luckily I had a few episodes of Fixer upper and some others to catch up on!
For some reason,though, I’m a little bit sad to be done with the making of it.
And I’m definitely going to start working more on my bright and scrappy version of this quilt. I’ve got a good start already. And I won’t be making the new quilt king-sized!
My friend Marion got it absolutely
right with the quilting pattern. I think it adds such a fun touch to an
old-fashioned classic pattern and setting.
It’s really hard to get a good photo in our room…the lighting is just not that great…but here’s the quilt at home! For next Christmas I’ll make quilted pillow shams and pillow cases to match. But for now I’m just happy to have a Christmas quilt that actually covers our bed!
