Holly Jolly

Just can't stop making items to decorate for Christmas this year! I started out really feeling the red and green, creating the two table runners, O Tannenbaum and Peppermint Candy. And even though it's close to Christmas, I'm still stitching away! This time, I was determined to use up old Christmas fabric, to make room for more fabric of course. I'm calling this lap size scrappy quilt Holly Jolly.



This is a pattern from the Precut Quilt book I gave away last week, and was really quick to put together. Measuring 54" x 69", it hardly made a dent in those Christmas fabrics. 



I did use some bigger yardage pieces for the back,



but I still have enough for another quilt. Still thinking about how to use it up, as it's nice to have an empty drawer.

For the quilting, I used the panto Holly Berry Flowers in gold Glide thread. The pattern is really hard to see, and turned out more dense than I expected.



Yet, it's very pretty, and the quilt adds more red and green to the living room. Merry Christmas!

Have a great day quilting!

  3. I recognize some of those fabrics from my own stash. The quilt is a great way to move them from stash to use. And, what a great name!

  4. This is a great scrappy quilt! Christmas fabric is something I don't have much of in my stash, but after seeing this maybe I need to add some. :) Thanks for sharing on MCM, and Merry Christmas!
