Christmas Quilt #2

Small Blog Meet

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks since I've linked up with the Small Blog Meet over at Lily's Quilts - I just baaaaarely qualify for it anymore, since as of this writing I'm at 48! Hopefully we can push it over the top this week, huh?

Well I haven't made one of those fancy collages everyone's making, since I'm still doing recaps of everything I made for Christmas. I managed to gift FIVE quilts for Christmas this year, which I think is pretty darn good considering I only started sewing in November 2010.

This jelly roll race-style quilt went to my father-in-law and his wife. My husband assured me they would like the colors, and indeed they did. :)

I really love some of the prints - the little birds, the dots... the large dot print in the top right? Some of the red dots are actually lady bugs. :)

I backed it with brown flannel - I love how snuggly it makes quilts.

I zig-zagged the quilting, stitch-in-the-ditch. The actual quilting part is my least favorite of any quilt project, I must admit.

All wrapped up and ready for gifting. I'm not sure the kitty cat, Wrench, was particularly impressed with this one. She does have a habit of sleeping on my unfinished quilts, though. :)

You can see another quilt I made for Christmas here, some placemats I made here, and look forward to reading about the other three over the course of the week!


  1. I love the ladybugs! Your quilt looks like I lovely present, the design's fantastic.

  2. oooo, I love flannel backed quilts too. I made my son a flannel quilt and its so soft and warm.
