Quilts for Christmas

>> Monday, December 30, 2019

This Christmas season I was able to gift 3 finished quilts - a record for me! I owe it to my local quilt shop owner who quilted two of them for me.

First up, the Monterrey Medallions quilt was finally officially given to my daughter. Now I just have to mail it to her as it didn't fit in her luggage!

I'm really happy with how this one turned out. I designed it based on the panel I got at my local quilt shop. The owner quilted it for me too! She did a great job going around the animals. Most of the fabrics were from my stash. I did buy the grunge green and some of the Northcott Stonehenge dark blues.

After I saw another quilter use this fabric for a backing, I knew it was the right one for this quilt! It's a beautiful wideback from Northcott.

This is the only quilt that I quilted - after it was sitting around for a year! It was the mystery quilt at my quilt guild the year I joined - 2016? I gifted it to my dad for his retirement this month. It has some of my favorite fabrics in it.

And this post wouldn't be possible in many ways without the support of this man, Mr. Sew Joy! He is always encouraging and willing to hold up my finished quilts. I plan to keep him busy next year too ;)

With Joy,
