Christmas Morning

Looks like I'm only going to finish two quilts for my big "Christmas in July Sewing Marathon".  Not much of a marathon, but it's been a busy month, and I am happy with the two tops I did complete.  I'm also happy July is almost over, Christmas in July sewing is not really my thing.

To make this block I started out with Cindy Lamman's Garden Lattice block, from her Simply Modern Christmas book.  Then I made it bigger and swapped out Cindy's center square with that pinwheelish center.  I've had a few requests for the block details, I'll work on a tutorial over the weekend and post it next week, so you can make your own Christmas Morning quilt.  I named it Christmas morning because we open our presents Christmas morning, and I think the top looks like a bunch of presents just waiting to be opened.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 183.
I've named it Christmas Morning.
It finished at 72" x 72".
The fabric is by Kate Spain for Moda, several different families.
It has approximately 460 pieces.

Now on to some summer themed sewing, I bet I can finish a couple of quilts before summer officially ends.
