Next Up . . .

So one of my 2016 Goals is to make 4 Christmas quilts as gifts for this year.  I have one down and am getting ready to start the second.  My goal is to make one every other month and be done with them all in plenty of time to be quilted and bound.

I thought this By the Chimney pattern by Lella Boutique was very festive, who wouldn't like a Christmas quilt covered with stockings.

Selecting fabric is always the hardest part of any project for me.  Here is step one of my stockings.  I'm just going with an assortment of Kate Spain for Moda Christmas prints.  They are from different families released different years, but I think they go together just fine.

I hope I don't like this quilt too much, I won't want to give it away.


  1. Kate Spain makes great Christmas fabric. It is Christmas, but not too cutesy.

  2. Great colors! I love Kate's xmas collections although 12 Days is still and probably will forever be the best!

  3. Oh my goodness! So cute! I enjoy working with Christmas fabric throughout the year. This is a cute idea.

  4. This is going to be a adorable quilt and you are so ahead of the game for Xmas gifts :-D

  5. Such an adorable quilt. Perfect fabric selections.

  6. That is a cute pattern and the fabrics you have picked out are wonderful!!!
