Almost Christmas Quilt

My Christmas Flimsy!

Okay, it’s just a flimsy (unfinished quilt top) but I did manage to squeeze in time to piece it all together in the hectic Christmas season.  I have always said that I would make a Christmas quilt one of these days, but haven’t ever actually done it.

I fell in love with these Christmas fabrics at one of our local-ish quilt stores and picked up 8 fat quarters and a bit of extra for a creamy background and red inner border.  It’s a great snuggle size and not so overtly holiday that it can’t be used a bit over the winter also.  Gotta love that!

In the photo, it is just laying across a queen sized bed and it covers the top from the pillows to the end of the bed.  I imagine it wouldn’t be too terrible to expand it into a bed sized quilt, just adding to this central star, border, and brick edging (it doesn’t show up terribly well in the photos).

A quilting friend (Hi, Carol!) graciously offered to let me use her long arm to finish it and it just may prove to be the perfect size project to learn on.  Now, to just have time to get around to it!

Have you ever long armed a quilt before?  Please share your tips below!

Till next time,
