Merry Christmas!

It will be a quiet Christmas Day at my house.  For a variety of reasons, we have celebrated Christmas early with some friends and family, and it will be a late Christmas with others.  So here at my house there will probably be some slow stitching and book reading and soup eating and football watching.  I'll be doing most all of that under my latest Christmas quilt - my Charming Plus Quilt that I finished earlier this week.


I quilted this in a very simple way - diagonal straight lines from edge to edge, so that every plus block has two lines of stitching going through it.


Binding is made from my leftover pieces of Kate Spain's Jingle.  I really love this text print and have used it a lot since I bought some yardage of it last year.


The boys are enjoying their Christmas quilts this year!


Wishing you a lovely Christmas Day filled with everyone and everything you love!

  1. I'm hoping my Christmas will be quiet after a while. We are all getting together for breakfast, and gifts, then my daughters are going to their boyfriends' families places. I will get to play with fabric, which lately has made me very happy! Merry Christmas to you!

  5. Enjoy your quiet Christmas day. Ours will be the same, very quiet with some reading and napping likely. Have a very Merry Christmas.

  7. I am glad you had a lovely, quiet Christmas (just like we did). And your quilt is simply delightful. So much so, in fact, that there is now a Plus quilt in my future. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! xo.
