Happy Christmas Quilt

I really like pretty much everything I make. I know I throw around a bunch of loves, amazings, and gorgeouses around here but buckle your seat belt – I’m really about to gush.

Could it be better? I am honestly in love. This is the penultimate holiday quilt to me. I’m really pleased with how everything came together and the finished object is just bright and shiny and joyful.

  • Pattern: Happy Christmas by Holly Lesue of Maker Valley
  • Top: scrappy kit from Maker Valley
  • Back: flannel from Sugarplum line by Heather Ross
  • Binding: ginghma print from Lori Holt
  • Quilting: by Nicole of Kwilt It!

Let’s take a closer look at the quilting, that may be my favorite part – and I didn’t even do it! Nicole did such an amazing job, the pink thread is just too good! The pattern is called simple snowflake and the texture is perfect.

If you recall from a few days ago, this beauty has been sitting around the house just waiting for me to finish the binding on the back. I finally finished it up, and I’m really pleased with how this has turned out. These are my best corners ever!

I’m getting pretty excited to have some Christmas-y handmades around the house this year. If you’re keeping score, this is make #6 for my year of Christmas. Maybe I’ll catch up and maybe not, but I can’t seem to care when I’ve got this beauty and her baby bro in my house.

I really just cannot. How are they both cuter when they are side by side? I wondered if I was being silly making the mini version of a quilt I’d already done and I can say now that I have no regrets. Worth every stitch.

Happy making!
