This row quilt was another project from our quilt guild this year. Most of my friends must already be enjoying theirs. I was hoping to get this quilt quilted before Christmas, but I am not sure I will have time. It turned out super nice, though.
My favorite rows are the stockings and the presents, although the entire quilt has cool features such as buttons on the vine, star buttons as toppers for the Christmas trees, yarn draped over the trees as garlands… One of my friends sewed buttons in the shape of Christmas gifts under some of the trees. I loved it!
This quilt is too big for a wall hanging… I may back it with flannel and turn it into a lap quilt, which my boys can then fight over.
We were supposed to make it scrappy, which is usually not my forte. However, I managed to include assorted background fabrics, made the stockings very different one from another, and for the gifts I picked fabrics I had not used before. Maybe I am learning!
