Christmas 🎄❄️🇩🇰

This quilt is my Christmas gift to myself.

It’s super soft, with very soft backing fabric from Helene’s Juul’s shop, it matches perfectly.

Its a fun quilt using low volume colours not my usual but really wanted something that was already vintage looking.

It was difficult to stick to the rules of low volume colours and did throw in a few bold ones!

But I think it still looks a bit vintage, I used pure cotton batting and pure cotton thread in the palest of pinks.

It was fun using lots of big print fabric.

And mixing up the odd colours.

I used up a lot of favourite scraps.

Here it is ready to be quilted.

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone 😃🎄😃🇩🇰😃

Red and white or white and red, that is the question?

I had to choose but couldn’t so made them both!

I made a block of each colour way when I had some spare time over the past year.

The red quilt is a little bigger than the white as I thought it might be nice to make bigger borders on it.

I don’t have time to quilt them at the moment and hope to get them finished in the early new year but have not decided on backing fabric or design, I don’t want to make one reversible quilt with the two quilts, as with all the seams it would be too bulky and the quilt would end up stiff, I think.

I had hoped to have them quilted for this Christmas but unfortunately I have too much other work to do.

I can’t make up my mind which I like best, one minute the red, then it’s the white, what about you which do you think is the nicest?

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone, full of joy and snuggled under a gorgeous quilt!

Mini Blackhole quilt.

A mini version of my Blackhole quilt, it’s approximately 22″ square.

It’s a Christmas gift and I have made it into a pillow.

I had lots of fun quilting it, I used some electronic work and some free motion quilting using block thread..

The back, not you will see it inside the pillow.

Here it is next to my original quilt.

and with two other pillows to go with it.
