Christmas Eve Wall Quilt


Here is a quilt for our wall that I'm calling Christmas Eve. There was no particular pattern, I just put blocks together with some pretty fabrics!



I used a gorgeous Hustle and Bustle layer cake from Fort Worth Fabric Studio and A Countryside Winter fabric from Bernie's now closed Needle and Foot Etsy shop.



I could also call it "Perfectly Imperfect" due to turning one of the red and white "bowties" into an hourglass. And in spite of being careful sewing the blocks together, I did not see it until I started taking photos of the finished quilt. In the famous (and wise) words of my Mom "It will never be noticed from a galloping horse."


I used a Christmas plaid from Joann's as the sashing


I love the little houses, red birds, and pine trees on the Countryside Winter fabric

The black sparkly snowflake binding is another great find from Joann's

More sparkly snowflakes on the back - yep, it's from Joann's

  7. That is a sweet quilt, Linda! Perfect for that spot and so neat that it's your own design! I really love the Countryside Winter fabric, too. A friend just gave me a kit for a Christmas wall-hanging that reminds of what you've made - I might just gave to sew it up right away!

  10. What fun to have a new quilt to celebrate Christmas eve. It looks so pretty with your other decorations. Funny how our photos poke fun of us. But I think that little turned part just adds to the design. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that the new year will bring more joy and lots of quilting time.
