“Christmas Sampler” – Finished!

17 12 2014


In between holiday baking for friends and neighbors and planning for weekend guests, I’ve quilted the “Christmas Sampler” for my son and his wife. You can read more about this project here.


At my local quilt shop, Loving Stitches, I found a lovely floral print for the backing. It is from Moda’s “Midwinter Reds” line designed by Minnick and Simpson. Since it is not necessarily Christmas fabric, my daughter-in-law could display the quilt backing side up when the holidays are over.


I decided on red thread and a Holly and Poinsettia edge to edge quilting design. Click  here to see the pantograph at patternman.com.


The quilt is finished with a red binding. With a label for the back, it’s all set for gifting on Christmas day!

Very nice! I never thought of a sampler using Christmas fabrics and since I have a lot, idea for next year.
