Christmas in August

This weekend I finished the nine-patch (one-a-day quilt-along) top. If you recall from a while back, I chose mine to be red and green - a Christmas quilt.

It's much larger than I imagined it would be ... 66x90 inches ... about twin-size. It's also much more appealing than I imagined - I really do like the red/green combination - and all the white!

I'm still deciding what to do about the back and quilting. To send to a long-arm quilter or attempt this myself?

Sorry for the crummy photos - today I learned the hard way that hanging a quilt top on a clothesline, in the wind, is a sure way to severely fay the quilt's edges. All while not get any decent photos. Darn.

I love that you did your's in red and green! Now I'm envious I hadn't thought of that. Not that I don't need another Christmas quilt project. I've got two in the works!

Saw your post on flickr and had to stop to leave a comment (since I went to NDSU years ago).

The quilt looks great, I am not surprised by the wind...it never stops in ND.
