Christmas in July Block-a-thon Quilt Complete
Yeah! I’m so excited to report that I have finished another amazing quilt! I’ll admit – this is probably going to be the last decent sized quilt I’ll have to share with you all for awhile but don’t worry it definitely won’t be the last. I have a few in the works right now just no time to get very far with them.
This quilt has been ‘in the works’ since about March when I asked to be one of the block designers for the quilt. I was so excited when they said ‘yes’! The actual quilt along started at the beginning of July. I put my last stitch in the binding sometime last week so this quilt was only about a 3 month project. I would say that’s a pretty quick turn around for a quilt along.
And here it is! I’m so loving how the grey/white/black ‘back ground’ fabrics create such a cool combination with the A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda fabric line that I chose as my prints. I also have to say that I LOVE the ‘cheater’ patchwork fabric print that makes it look like I worked a lot harder on my borders than I did! Here’s just one close up picture of the amazing design quilting that Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb did on this quilt. I am so so so in love with the pattern she chose and the heavier florescent orange thread couldn’t go any better! Perfect choices by Barb and extremely well made! LOVE it!
And I had to show off just one more picture of the overall quilt. I have been making too many quilts that aren’t for sale yet – I really should probably put this one up.
I would love your opinion on a name for this quilt!
I don’t think ‘Christmas in July – Block-a-thon’ quite fits it…
If you’re sad that you missed this amazing quilt along – no worries! Free Spirit has put together a ‘Flip Book’ so you can easily see all the blocks and how to make them! I definitely need to do some ‘Flip Book’ research so I can make one up for the ‘Home Sweet Home’ Quilt Along. …
