Posts Tagged ‘Christmas quilt’

This project started out as a panel of pre-printed Christmas designs that were meant to be cut out and made into tree ornaments.   I wanted to make a quilt with them, so I framed each square with muslin strips and and then added corners to make the blocks into snowballs.

Then I sewed all the blocks together into rows, and the snowball corners make nice little diamonds.

Now I’m adding the borders.  There will be three borders — red, green, red — and the quilt top will finish at 48×56 inches.

It could be a lap quilt, but I think I will probably use it as a table covering for Christmas Eve.

Happy Quilting!
