I’m excited to share my most recent quilt finish with you all today. I’ve named the quilt “Yuletide Magic” after the panel that I pulled the focus fabric from.
Aside from that panel, the rest of the fabric was left over from my Christmas Emporium quilt (also known as the Christmas crazy quilt). I wanted to use up as much of my Christmas fabric as possible. That way, I won’t be tempted to buy even more Christmas themed fabric to finish up a project.
The one fabric that I did buy was black tonal yardage that I used for the sashing. I had originally planned to use some solid black yardage I purchased a while back, but it ended up being used as lead fabric on my quilt frame – and I’m so glad it did. The quilt looks so much better with that tonal fabric. I even used some of it on the back.
Each block in the quilt is 12″, with 2″ sashing, so the quilt finishes at approximately 44″x58″,a fantastic size for lounging on the couch. The blocks alternate between traditionally pieced 9-patch blocks and crazy patch blocks. I think my favorite part about this quilt is how well it coordinates with my crazy quilt while still being perfect to cuddle under.
What Christmas sewing projects do you have around your house?
