A Christmas in July Post

Coming Home to the Woods of Switzerland for Christmas Quilt


Well, I sure would like to be posting more, but I'm not. Hmm, I really don't have anything to say about that. Maybe I'm doing other things. Anyways, here is a quilt I just finished. It is all washed, dried and crinkly goodness (pictures are pre-wash...couldn't wait, it was going to rain) and I love it. I began with this one last year at Christmas time, but didn't finish. I DID finish this quilt last Christmas though:

Christmas Star Quilt


So now, I have one for each couch. Yippee!

And I must say, I didn't think I would come to the day, but I have, and I love free motion quilting a stipple. I didn't realize from pictures on the internet what a lovely texture a stippled cotton quilt has. And I have actually never touched one in real life until when I made my own.  Isn't that crazy?  What a strange world the internet makes.

Coming Home to the Woods of Switzerland for Christmas Quilt!
 

Here are the stats for this quilt:

Size: 50" x 67"
Pattern: "Coming Home" from Camille Roskelley's book, Simplify (adapted, enlarged)
Fabric: charms from Moda's lines, Swiss Holiday and Woodland Holiday, Bella Snow
Binding: Lilac Hill by Moda
Backing: Flannel from LQS
Batting: Hobbs Cotton Wait!  I used an "upcycled" flannel sheet for this one!  I love doing this.   My mom finds them at the thrift store she works at for super cheap!  I love the texture and the thin, drapy-ness.
