Christmas in July

I've got my first finish for my Christmas in July sewing marathon.



This is Lifetime Quilt Number 182
The pattern is Round and Round by Camille Roskelley for thimble blossoms 
The fabric is Mostly Manor by Victoria Findlay Wolfe for Marcus Brothers Fabrics
It finished at 72" x 72" (my favorite size)
It has approximately 634 pieces.

This is my second Round and Round finish, I made this quilt in December 2013,  using Kate Spain Christmas fabric.

I really enjoyed all the white space after my last project.  Now on to the next, I'm hoping to get at least one more Christmas quilt done, two more would be better, I'm just not sure how long I'll be able to stand working with Christmas fabric this time of year.

  2. I enjoy reading your blog and getting inspired with new colours and patterns. This quilt is lovely. It is a pattern I have on my list to do with Christmas fabrics also - but it won't get done as quickly as yours!
    (Check the bottommost green star - it looks to have one twisted point)

  7. Love the quilt, but I think one square on the bottom is backwards. Easy fix so close to the bottom - hope you haven't quilted it yet! I love your idea of Christmas quilts!

  10. Your quilt is so pretty. Do you press your seams open or to the side? With the white fabric (without the batting and backing) you can see the seams...just wondered it looks like it lies so flat.

  11. That is a very elegant quilt. I was surprised it was made with so many pieces. Good luck with getting the next 1 or 2 done.
