Being a machine quilter, I seem to start quilting people's Christmas quilts clear in July....I kind of "ugh" and perservere through those, who is in the mood for Christmas in July? The year spins fast enough as it is, and I'm really not ready for Christmas until after thanksgiving. That's just the way it is :c)
This past week I have spent time quilting this wonderful yet simple Christmas quilt for my customer, Mary Ann. It has printed blocks in the center of the log cabin squares, and I just LOVE the secondary star that is made by the sashings.....the units are similar to the weedwhacker quilt blocks! This gives me ideas for quilts in the future, using these as sashings, not just as blocks.
I'm usually not a "pre-printed" block fan, but I really like this one, I love how the quilting ties it all together!
