Perfect For Your Decor!

Just in time for your holiday decorations -  a finished quilt for you!  The center of each block is fussycut and then surrounded by coordinating fabrics which have been added in a log cabin / courthouse steps fashion.  The six center blocks include Santa Claus, peppermint sticks, a snowy house, a Christmas stocking, and two different types of bells.  The quilting that holds the quilt together is decorative stitching around the six center blocks in red and blue thread.  The quilt corners are square even though the picture doesn't look like they are.  Getting them to look square in a picture is the hardest thing. 

Little details that make this quilt special include:  All fabrics are Thimbleberries fabrics, a high-quality quilt-shop fabric that tends to fade less and last longer.   The fabrics have a holiday look to them, including pine boughs, holly and mistletoe.  The backing matches in a pine bough fabric rather than a solid white.  The binding was machine stitched on with perfectly mitered 45-degree corners and was hand-tacked to the backing; the binding was joined to itself using a 45-degree seam.  My quilt instructor would be proud!
