Cozy Christmas Quilt Finished

Here is the Christmas quilt I finished a few months ago.  It's from an old Fons and Porter pattern.  I'm thrilled to finally have it done.

I did a lot of quilting on each block, after I stitched in the ditch in every seam.  I think I might need to add some more quilting to the borders to help it hang a little straighter.

Looking at the quilts that are all over Instagram these days, these colors seem very old-fashioned now.  I guess I will always be a really traditional quilter.  Give this one 20 years and it will be back in style.

The season is in full swing and I'm busy with lots of top-secret projects.  My reindeer applique is also coming along.  I have a few more Christmas finishes to share as the month progresses.

Now I'm off to work on some Christmas cards.  Have a great weekend!

I love the colors on it (and all your projects).

I love the colours you have chosen. The deep greens and reds are perfect for a Christmas quilt. I too am a very traditional quilter.
