I finished a Christmas quilt and it's not even October yet!! You might remember back in May, during the May is for Makers campaign, I purchased the Broken Frames pattern from Meadow Mist Designs. But it wasn't until I made my list of projects for Q3 of the 2016 FAL, that I decided I was going to turn Broken Frames into a Christmas quilt.
I chose two charm packs of Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey, some Kona White and Kona Red, which I also used for the binding.
For the quilting, I debated just doing some straight lines echoing the seams, but in the end, I went with two different FMQ designs: flowers and square spirals.
I love all the yummy texture this quilting creates!
The finished size is about 50" x 68" before washing - so a pretty good size for the couch.
If you're in the market for a really quick and easy quilt - the pattern comes in 3 sizes (baby, lap and twin), I highly recommend this one. It would be perfect for that charm pack you've been hoarding or you can use scraps. This pattern is perfect for some fun fussy cutting and would make an awesome "I spy" baby quilt.
I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at for Crazy Dutch Bird Quilts for TGIFF.
And this is project number 7 on my 2016 FAL Q3 list so I'll be linking up for that too at the beginning of October.
