A Christmas Quilt In Progress...

These are the fabrics I chose for the Christmas lap quilt I'm making as a gift for...oops!...no way! I'm not telling! HA!
The center of the design is actually a Christmas panel with a nice, prim look. There are three messages on it. "All is Merry and Bright", "Let it snow!" and "Peace on Earth". I love the colors and they'll coordinate perfectly in the recipient's home.
I really like the black and white check I chose for this, too. It wasn't part of the line, but really looks great with it.
I finished the quilt top yesterday, and when I get back home this afternoon from running errands this morning, I'll assemble the top, batting and back and machine quilt it all together. I'm going to do a little detail quilting around the motifs in the center panel, and then play around on the border.

I'll use the red stars for the binding to finish it off. I'm hoping to check this project off my To Do List by tonight.

What do you think I should do next from my list? (I put the list on my left sidebar and will mark each item off as I finish it. I'm having trouble deciding what to do next.

Wow! You have a great eye for fabric. I love the lap quilt and the placemats. What fabric are they. I've been looking around here and have not been abe to see any that is really as cute. Guess I have to go on-line to do my shopping. Thanks for sharing.

That is a lovely quilt and has beautiful colors! That is also quite the to do list! ohmygosh!
I vote for the mug mats.

Jillayne said...

You had me at the check - love those geometrics! I have that same panel and have been eyeing it up for a few days now.... love what you did!
I think you should do mug mats next. Yours are always gorgeous, and I know you can make them lickety-split so you will feel great crossing them off in no time!

Sarah said...

Donna, this quilt is delightful. Of course you know I like the black and white accent with this. ;-)
I think you should start on the stuffed animal. That sounds like it will be fun, and I'm eager to see what you plan to make. ~ Sarah
