One of Four

One of my 2016 Quilting Goals is to finish 4 Christmas quilts for gifts this year.  I've pieced my first one, 3 more to go. 

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 174
The pattern is All Wrapped Up by Kate Spain (it's a free pattern, click here)
It finished at 55" x 65"
It has approximately 282 pieces

I used random Kate Spain holiday fabrics from several families for this top.  10 inch squares worked perfectly.

I think the size and style of this quilt makes it a perfect gift.  It could be hung on a wall or used as a lap quilt.

I need to not procrastinate on piecing the back and getting it quilted!


  1. Very nice, Thelma. Congratulations on getting this top together. I look forward to seeing the next three :)

  2. It is a pretty quilt and I am sure it will be much appreciated. Yay 174 quilts! How do you count them - when you complete the tops?

  3. Any particular reason you are making four Christmas quilts? Enquiring minds want to know.

  4. This one makes me smile! So bright and happy! Along with the rest of your commenters, I'm looking forward to your next Christmas quilt!

  5. Thelma, this is just the kick in the seat of my pants that I need to get those Christmas gifts made NOW instead of letting December come and then telling myself I'll get them done next year.Your presents quilt is adorable :)

  6. I bought some Christmas fabric on sale with hopes of doing just this. You've inspired me.

  7. So pretty! I have a big stash of Kate Spain Christmas fabric that I need to use for something. :)

  8. I did that for my son and his wife for Christmas a few years ago
