My first "finish" of 2013!
Ok, I was aiming to have this done closer to Christmas '12, but it still feels good to say "DONE," and send this quilt off to my sister. Plus, it's still snowy where I live in the Rocky Mountains, so it doesn't seem SO out of season.
This was my first time using a "fat quarter bundle" made entirely of 1 collection: Aneela Hoey's Cherry Christmas. I even used fabrics from this collection for the backing and binding. If you remember, this project started off as a table runner, and spontaneously turned in to a quilt. And at 70" x 62.5", it's a decent-sized quilt at that! (The squares are all 2" x 2".)
A friend of mine's mother actually quilted this for me on her long-arm machine. I love the meandering swirl pattern and think it fits well on a wintery holiday quilt. It reminds me of blustery wind gusts.
Now on to other unfinished projects:
