[edited to add: link to tutorial that shows how I made this quilt!]
Pardon me while I do a little quilt-journaling. I recently borrowed this quilt back from my sister for an afternoon so I could get some better photos of it. Plus, I had been missing it.
I wasn’t ever really happy with the original photos I took of the quilt, so I was happy to have the chance to get a few more!
I made this quilt back in November/December of 2009. It was a birthday gift for my sister and (I’m sad to say) one of the only quilts I’ve ever labeled.
One of my favorite parts of this quilt was the backing. I don’t often use a print for the entire backing on a quilt. I had to this time. This snowman print was just too adorable. I’m thinking that it is from Riley Blake. Does anyone remember for sure?
I love the colors. After working on this quilt, I decided to switch our Christmastime colors from maroon and gold to this bright and fun color combo.
I loved creating each of the elf hats – particularly the unique ones. I talk more about those in this post.
And finally… a green striped binding. A lovely, and perfect finish to a Christmas quilt!
