Blogger's Quilt Festival

I was so excited about this and then almost forgot!

Since we should probably all have started our Christmas sewing by now (yeah right!), I thought I'd share my Christmas quilt.

I made this last year with leftover fabric from strippy runners I'd made to sell at a friend's studio sale.
I had been wanting to make a zig zag quilt for a while and Christmas was right around the corner.

I love this quilt and can (almost) not wait to take it out of the closet.

  8. It's gorgeous! Makes me want to make one just like it! I really love the white zig-zag in between each print. Makes it feel like ribbons in a field of snow. I also love red for the binding.

  20. Now you've done it. You've gone and gotten this Southern Californian in the mood for Christmas. I hate to rush the season because fall is the time of our perfect weather. But when I saw your lovely quilt, I knew I had to start thinking ahead. . . and quickly.

    Thanks for your post.

  58. Quilts shouldnt be in closets...They should be hung on the wall, lain over stair rails, draped over a chair or put on the bed...I love your Christmas quilt! Why only display it 8 weeks a year! Pull that baby out and drape it over a chair arm where everyone can appreciate it every day of the year..It is beautiful! :)
