It was a Quilty Christmas

Posted by Strlady at 9:49 AM
Another quilt that was given this year was The Red White and Blue. This one had been completed back in August, but I had not gotten around to quilting the piece.

I sent it off to Margaret Gunn and she had it back to me in time to bind it and give it to my sister, Jessica before she went off to PR for the holidays.

Here it is bound and ready for it's new owner:

I put a flannel backing to it since Jessica's biggest complaint is that it's not warm enough.

I used some left over charm packs to join the backing

And make the binding..

Margaret did an all over pattern with some Stars thrown in which was exactly my vision for this quilt. After a quick wash the stars became scruffy giving it a more cuddly feel.

I love this one. I'm sure it will be well used.

I am in LOVE with this quilt, and after you washed it, it looks so cuddly! I try to put flannel on the back of my quilts, it's just that much warmer.

Stack 'n Whack quilts are fun to make. The designs within a star or whatever shape you are working on can be such a surprise. I haven't made one in quite some time but enjoyed doing the ones I did make.
