A Christmas Quilt

It started in April as a one-a-day nine-patch quilt-along project. I chose to do all red and green - a Christmas quilt!

It was finished and washed over Thanksgiving weekend. I'm very happy to report that my slacker method of not pre-washing was again a no-bleed success (even with all those saturated reds!), thanks to Shout Color Catchers.

I paid to have the quilt professionally long-arm quilted.

It's plenty big enough for a twin-size bed. I think I might have to make another one of these some day soon - a quilt with this style but different colors would sure look cute on the twin bed in the baby's room.

Yay! It's beautiful! I can't wait to finish mine (sometime next year).

I did one of these too! (We call ours the Kitchen-y Quilt... long story.)
