Swell Christmas Lucky Log Cabins Quilt

Today I am excited to share a new Christmas quilt. This project has been a longtime in the works and I’m thrilled to check this one off the #finishit list!

This fabric collection is called Swell Christmas and it’s a really great mix of traditional Christmas colors, holiday prints, all with a vintage flare. I’d been holding on to the collection for several years, just waiting for a great pattern. Then last year, Emily Dennis from Quilty Love released her Lucky Log Cabins quilt pattern and it felt like the perfect scrappy design. 

I pieced the quilt top last December, ordered the backing fabric, and then never got around to quilting it. Until this year! Our three year old is REALLY into Christmas & Santa this year and it seemed like the perfect quilt to finish for her bed.

I wanted an all over quilting design that gave the quilt movement and texture, without being busy. I chose to quilt it with three wavy lines grouped tightly together, followed by another three lines spread just a little further apart. I’m really happy with the finished look!

Solid binding felt like a great way to finish this Christmas quilt. Binding is my favorite part of the whole quilting process! You can check out my free binding tutorial here. 

This quilt is officially on a bed and providing lots of cozy Christmas vibes in our house!

I Heart You Quilt | #Finishit2019 Number Six

I'm thrilled today to share with you all my sixth quilty finish of 2019 - my I Heart You quilt. As you can tell from the snow in the pictures, it's been completed for a few months just waiting for a blog post. Well, here we are!

When Then Came June & Pen and Paper Patterns announce the #IHeartYouSewAlong, using their I Heart You quilt pattern, I was quickly bitten by the bug. This simple, clean design looks go in so many color palettes plus it was a fun, fast finish. For my version I decided to leap a bit outside the box, and I'm so glad I did!

A Bonnie & Camille Color Pop Baby Quilt | #Finishit2019 Number Five

There's no such thing as too many baby quilts, right? I mean, it only makes sense that Harper would have ALL THE QUILTS - she is my daughter after all. Spoiler Alert: this scrappy Bonnie & Camille quilt didn't start out as a baby's just where it ended.
