Christmas Quilt

Quilter's World magazine has just published their Autumn issue featuring my 'Formal Attire' Christmas quilt. I love working with reds and greens and this quilt was so fun and easy to make.

I used Square-in-a-Square blocks with different color combinations. The green corners of the cream blocks form a bow tie, my whole idea for this quilt and thus its name. Formal Attire was quilted by Quilts in the Corner in Sandy, Utah - they did a great job with the Christmas motif.

The fabrics are from the Midnight Clear collection by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics, and the cream is a Bella Solid.

The backing is dreamy... The quilt measures 61" x 80" and comes together really fast. So, if you are looking for a cool Christmas project, here is the magazine:

As you can see from the quilt on the cover, this issue has 15 Fall projects - lots of great options for gifts (check out Oklahoma on page 23 and Lotza Boxes on page 68). The magazine can also be downloaded from their catalog.

I love getting ahead on Christmas projects!

Happy Quilting,
