Hello Happy Quilters! I'm so excited to finally get my Christmas Joy Quilt off the frame. This is a fairly small quilt and pretty lightly quilted it should have taken no longer than 2 days to quilt. However my ruler foot broke and then there was an issue with a back spinning bobbin. The powers that be love to throw me a few curve balls with ever quilt.
The quilt will be used by my grandchildren when they come to visit during the holiday season. I wanted it to be soft and cuddly for them and have pretty quilting is for me. I think I achieved both.
Sometimes it's hard to achieve the feathery look I love without making a stiff quilt. The trick is to not follow some of the so called rules for custom quilting. I'm pretty sure the longarm quilting police would curl their noses at the lack of background quilting in my applique blocks.
Now all that's left to do is add the polka dot binding. Since I have about 11 months to finish the binding I'll take my time and hand stitch it to the back of the quilt.
The Christmas Joy Quilt pattern was designed by Carol Swift for the Thermoweb website. I made a few alterations to the pattern to make my own. Click here for the original pattern.
