I love it when my numbers take a jump! I completed my Christmas Wish quilt this week. I had planned to finish it in time for the holidays last year, but forgot to pack a few small pieces of Christmas fabric when we headed south last fall! Since I have decided not to buy any new Christmas fabric until my holiday stash has shrunk, I waited to complete it when we returned north.
This was a busy quilt, so most of the quilting is "in the ditch" with a few curvy lines in the 16-patch blocks. I quilted a simple continuous line in the final border, and used a striped fabric for the binding.
There were a few small, wholecloth areas for some free form quilting fun!
