Christmas Quilt

Here is the Christmas quilt I made for this year.  It has the same red and blue fabrics as the one last year but they look very different.

Each block is made of 16 HSTs - 480 of them!  I made them with my Wonder Cut Ruler and didn't have any problems.  I spent several nights ironing and clipping corners.  There were so many pieces.

I didn't have to trim the HSTs, but I did trim the set of 4's and the blocks as I went to make sure everything would line up just so.

I quilted it with loops and snowflakes.  It was quick and easy and it goes with the snowflakes on the red fabric.  Backed with red minky, it's a big quilt 60 by 72 inches.  Perfect for snuggling with this cutie!

  1. What a great Christmas snuggle quilt. I like that the fabrics match last year's quilt. I have yet to try using minky on the long arm. Thanks for sharing Shannon.

  2. Snuggly and festive. What a great combination. I love it!

  3. So gorgeous! You mixed the fabric prettily and quilted it beautifully (the occasional snowflake adds lots of interest). And I think that your corners are done perfectly.

  4. This is a beautiful snuggly quilt. I love stars.
