I've been sewing away on the Christmas strip quilt I'm making. I must say I love how cheerful it looks. It is made of fabrics which are predominantly shades of green or red. A lot of the fabrics also have white in them which really brightens the quilt up. I used Christmas fabrics as well as non-seasonal ones that I thought mixed in well.
When sewing all the little pieces together I alternated between red and green fabrics. I sewed one long, long giant strip together, then cut it up every 63 inches. I then arranged those strips to make the quilt. My only rule was that no two pieces which were exactly the same fabric touch each other in the quilt. Some areas are more green, some more red, but I think it is looking great overall. I don't have too many strips left to sew in place.
Thanks for stopping by!
