Peppermint Lane Finish

I met my goal of piecing 6 holiday quilts this year for some special friends and family.  This is the quilt that got me to 6.  

The pattern is Peppermint Lane by It's Sew Emma for the Fat Quarter Shop.  I made just a couple of changes.

First, I substituted brown dot fabric for my gingerbread men

And I replaced the gingerbread house in the pattern with Bonnie's Santa hat, which I fell in love with while making Christmas Cheer. I'm thinking next year I should make a quilt top of nothing but Santa hats, festive mittens, and maybe a mug of hot cocoa thrown in for fun.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 236 - Peppermint Lane
The pattern is by It's Sew Emma for the Fat Quarter Shop.  (available here)
The fabric is mostly Vintage Holiday by Bonnie and Camille for Moda
It finished at 55" x 69" 
It has approximately 884 pieces.

I'm leaving off that outer border called for in the pattern.  I like the cleaner look this top has without it.  But to add a little sparkle I'll use the silver stripe fabric from Vintage Holiday for the binding.

I now have one week to piece my traditional October halloween themed quilt, I don't know what it will be, other than fast and easy.

  1. Beautiful! It's always so inspirational to see your work!

  2. The Santa hat is adorable and the fabric used for the fur on the hat is FABULOUS! I agree - a complete quilt of Santa hats would be spectacular. I keep thinking I'm going to make my three college friends (we're 56) Christmas quilts one year (all of our birthdays are within one month's time in Oct-Nov). Some variation of the same quilt would be fun.

  3. First of all, congratulations for meeting this personal goal! Well done! This quilt is delightful and will be cherished for years to come. I like how you made it your own.
