Description

This pattern is taken from a magazine we have in the UK called Popular Patchwork, and was a square a month. I decided to do it in a Christmas theme as it required only 3 colours and had an Angel on one of the blocks. The block with the hand I actually traced my sons rather than just copy their pattern. I am also using bondaweb and embroidering around all the pieces rather than using freezer paper - as this was a technique I was unfamiliar with when I started the quilt. The original quilt was done in red, white and blue. 

27 April 2013

Sewed all the blocks together - with a little snipping here and there. Pleased with the result so far.

18 February 2014 - taken a very long time but have finally done the back for this. Time to baste!

31 July 2014 - Can't believe this has taken me so long. I really must get into the habit of completing a quilt before starting another top....


I have named my quilt - Christmas Hearts

I really like your Christmas Version! This is going to be a fantastic holiday quit. Great Idea to use your son's hand rather than just the pattern piece.
