Crazy Christmas Finished (322)


Hi all, so I've been doing some catching up lately after the worst cold, lasting 4 weeks I'm finally back...and I'm pleased to blog about my Crazy Christmas quilt is now finished...well I kind-of made mine a bit smaller it's 15 blocks instead of 25. I have 17 blocks finished but not enough for one more row's the pics

I've taken these with my iPhone so they are not the BEST but do capture it's my favourite block.

This was such a fun project including videos - to music lol and learning the quilt as you go technique so it wasn't such a huge quilt to go ahead and quilt all at one at the end...nice to complete this in smaller segments.

We still have a few more Crazy Christmas kits available and these have been quite if you've been debating on purchasing one, let me know. One lady wanted one so bad she asked if we could split the total up into payments - now that's a die hard quilter and I greatefully obliged.

How do you like the back, nice and scrappy, how do you like the scrappy binding?




Crazy Christmas Block of the Month (190)

Okay, so I'm absolutely in love with this Georgette Line of Christmas fabrics, it's so wintery and fresh, an absolute delight to work with:) mixed with the silks...complete satisfaction. 

Each month we will be making 2 blocks one plain like this one and one with wool applique and embroidery which will be finished as we go along using a quilt as you go technique...

What do you think? Something super perfect for your walls during the holiday season, I think so :)

Until next time, stay happy and creative,
