Finish it up Friday: Christmas in July

Finished up my Christmas blanket from last year….yes, it somehow takes two years to make a very basic patchwork quilt when you are making it for yourself. I think we are also way too busy close to Christmas to get anything done, so hence the reason we are celebrating Christmas in July. Modern Handcraft - A very cherry Christmas quilt

This blanket features Cherry Christmas, my new all time favorite Christmas fabric that came out last year. I always adore Aneela Hoey’s color choices in her fabrics and this one was perfect for us!

We changed our Christmas decor last year to red, white and gray and this will work for years to come as we add in some aqua and green.

The backing for this fabric is a coordinating Kona solid and I WISH I wrote down which one it was, it matches the darker parts of the gray. For the binding another one of those grab and not remember fabrics at JoAnns. I love buying fabric online so I can go back and see my order history and see what in the heck I got!

I took this quilt with me to Indiana this past week while visiting family because I wanted to take some pics on the green grass there, and the corn!

Corn seriously makes the best backdrop for quilts don’t you think? Plus we had some beautiful blue skies as well.
