Since Thanksgiving I’ve been on a mission to finish some of the quilt tops I have been working on. The first quilt on my list was this fun Farmhouse Christmas quilt in a colorful, cheery colorway (I called it my Merry and Bright Farmhouse Christmas quilt). The photo above is what it looked like at this time last year–the quilt top was finished, but I didn’t make it farther than that.
I quilted it in this fun geometric design called Compass. The design reminded me of retro stars that would go on top of the Christmas trees.
The backing is a green Cotton + Steel deer print–I just love those cute deer! For the binding, I chose a fun Cotton + Steel snowflake print. I didn’t use it anywhere else in the quilt, but it was too perfect to not use.
I even took the time to hand bind the quilt (I usually machine bind them). I had the perfect Aurifil thread on hand–Blossom Pink (#2530)–and got to watch some of the Great British Baking Show while I was at it.
I love how this Farmhouse Christmas quilt turned out and love that we have another fun Christmas quilt to snuggle this winter.
