Oh Christmas Quilt, Oh Christmas Quilt...


Another project to cross of the list! I'm glad this is done, it was fun, and it turned out really great. It was a big project I wanted to get done before Thanksgiving! I used flannel for the back, its red, so i washed it ahead of time, but still some of the pieces with red polka dots turned slight pink. I hate using red. I love the look, but it makes me nervous and I sit by the washer just twiddling my thumbs wondering if its going to bleed even after I pre-wash! This one was a beast to quilt, I think its the flannel on the back. But I'm proud to say there are no puckers in sight......except one. This will make a nice cozy addition to our Christmas decor!

It's wonderful! I love it. Have you tried color catchers to wash with your quilts?

I can't believe how quick you are! I've been experimenting with FMQ but have lots of tension problems on the back. Yours looks really lovely.
