Merry Christmas to All

Mary inherited this Christmas panel fabric and decided to make herself a Christmas quilt.  See how she offset the blocks 2 strips along 2 sides of each panel?  That may be a trademark for Mary.  I personally think it’s a creative way to show off a focus fabric without the quilt looking too “blocky” if you know what I mean…in regimented rows.

You really can’t see the quilting, so Mary decided an allover edge-to-edge quilting design would work best for her quilt.  She went with holly scattered throughout.  The picture below on the left shows what the quilting looks like on top and the one on the right shows what it looks like from the back of the quilt.  Do you see anything unusual stitched in the picture on the right?  At the top of the quilt, I wrote “Merry Christmas to all”…

     

…and completed the saying on the bottom with “and to all a good night”.

Here’s a shot of the back, where you can see what I actually did with the quilting.

See how easy you can complete a holiday quilt?  Use those panels, quilt it with a simple allover design, and you’ll have a holiday quilt finished in no time!
