I know it's February and this is a Christmas quilt but I am so thrilled that this is completely finished!
This will be the last installment of the Scrappy Christmas Quilt-A-Long and it has been quite a journey for me. This was my first ever QAL and I had a lot of fun and I used up a lot of scraps. I hope that you had fun too - even if it was just reading along - I hope that you had fun!
I quilted the quilt very simply in a free-hand loose meander loop with holly leaves in the mix in a 40 weight cotton thread top and bobbin. Since the quilt is already so busy I didn't want to overwhelm it with too much quilting. Plus this quilt is going to be used on a bed so I like less quilting to keep them soft and cuddly and to keep the flannel backing soft too.
Don't you just love the little Grinch popping up!? He makes me smile :-D
In the border I used a gold 36 weight Aurifil thread and quilted a free-hand holly leaf vine in a gentle wave. I love gold thread on a Christmas quilt!
So did you follow along? Is your quilt in process or finished?? If you have made one or are making one please share a link to your blog or share a picture on the Facebook page so that we can all admire it - I know that I would love to see your quilt!!
Time to come up with another leaders and enders project!
