I was waiting for a sliver of sunshine so I could get some good photos of this quilt…but took one look at the forecast and decided a rainy shot in our forest will have to do!
It smells like Christmas trees in there when it rains.
I used my newest Wish pattern for the design, and most of the fabrics are from the Candlelight fabric line by Ruby Star Society plus some basics. It’s such a pretty line without being over the top Christmas-y or juvenile. I added in the yellows for the stars, and the darker gold linen fabric. The background is Bella Solids Off White.
This is a pretty straight forward pattern to make, but there are lots of diagonal seams.
I’m starting to sound like a broken record but…you need this tape when you make this quilt!!!!!
Can you spot my fabric layout mistake up there? Arg!! That’s what I get for watching cheesy Christmas movies while I sew. No quilt is complete without one good mistake though right?
I quilted this with my go-to quick loops. It’s hard to tell in the photos, but the darker linen fabric for the stars is metallic gold. It’s sparkly in person.
I didn’t even notice Jane’s little toy up on my sewing machine table until now. I’ve been sewing at our dining/school/everything table and just shoved our messes to the side for a photo LOL.
This year with my entire family home 24/7 I’ve learned to accept allll the messes. Until every other week or so I snap and we clean clean clean until Mom can breathe again!
I hope you enjoy this last bit of the season before Christmas. Don’t stress, and eat all the peppermint things!
