Merry Christmas!… in July!
I am currently working on a Christmas quilt just for me!
I have never actually made a Christmas quilt believe it or not… but have always wanted one. This year in my local guild we decided we would all try to make ourselves a Christmas quilt this year. We started planning it out in January.
First I picked out my pattern….
Just loved this one by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter. I love the wonky-ness and whimsical look. I also love the simplicity! Lol.
Then I came across this fabric…
Swell Christmas by Urban Chic. I loved the vintage feel of it. And I liked that it had some pink in it… different feel for a Christmas quilt.
Here is a great FQ bundle you can find at Fat Quarter Shop HERE
Here are a few of my blocks…
I think I should have thought more about contrast in some of these…. I mean I did but I could have used a few solids in here! A little busy feeling for me to just sew all these together. Hey… you learn something from every quilt. I’m thinking of adding some sashing to break it up a little… what do you think? Or should I just see them together and get a beautiful crazy quilt:)
Now is the time to get going on your Christmas quilt! Lots of Beautiful Christmas fabric lines are out and Christmas in July Sales.
So tell me what you’re u think? Are you working on a Christmas project?
Feel free to share on FB or Instagram. Follow me below so I can see:)
Keep it Sassy♥
