A Christmas Quilt (in January)

This is the first of my catch up projects from last year.  Every December since I started quilting I would look at all the lovely Christmas quilts and wish I had the time to make one.  So this year I started in July!  I still didn't finish it until December but this year for the first time I snuggled up watching The Snowman (a lot - James became somewhat obsessed) under my very own Christmas quilt.

I didn't get around to taking any photos until now but I figured as there is a lot of snow in the UK and it is still January I can get away with it!  These are taken in the new garden which is somewhat sloped, step ridden and unsuitable for quilt photo taking - honestly a suitable quilt backdrop really should have featured higher in my house essential list.

Fabric: Moda Countdown to Christmas & Timeless Treasures in Cream Sketch, Binding - Kona Charcoal, Backing is Ikea Britten Numbers
Pattern: Made in Cherry by Sarah Fielke
Quilting: I followed Katie's fab guide here

I think I may be using this for another few months yet.

Linking up with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts 


which this week is at Devoted Quilter


  1. It's lovely. The sew cherry design work brilliantly for Christmas fabrics. Don't fret about the snowman obsession, there will be lots of variety in the Christmas movie obsessions in years to come!e

  2. Way to be prepared for 2015's Christmas! I'm with you - I've got two to finish this year.

  3. Beautiful! And should I be house hunting again in the future I will be sure to remember that the yard must be quilt-photo worthy! Thanks for linking to TGIFF,

  4. Looks wonderful!
    Ohhh the Snowman... One of my favorites too!

  5. I made a table cover with a couple of Christmas blocks that I loved so much I want to make more and make it into a full quilt by next Christmas. Yours is lovely.

  6. Great finish, and nice photos too :)

  7. Well really, I think photographic location for quilts should have been top of the list ;o) Do you know, I had to go and look up my own tute to see what you did? *ahem*

  8. Fantastic Finish! I love your photos!!
