Yesterday I finished the Christmas Plaid quilt. I think maybe it looks better in person, with all its bling, than in the photos. It’s a lot
darker cozier than Christmas Birds, kind of Dickensian.
The plaid fabric continued to be uncooperative (see my whining here). I probably should have interfaced it. It washed up fine, though, and is all neat and square, in spite of how squishy some of these blocks look.
Actually, it is a pair of unrelated but very coordinating red, green, gold, and white Christmas prints. I think they were my mother’s, and they hadn’t made it into the front of any projects because of the “brown” problem. They are beautiful and interesting up close.
This may be the last Christmas quilt for this year. On the other hand, I discovered more fabric under my pine cone fabric. And I’ve been looking at my blue Christmas fabric, which is another category entirely. Hmmm…
Thanks for looking, and I hope you’re finding sewing time!
