Christmas in July!
I am having a difficult time believing that we are indeed halfway through 2012 and even more so that we're on the slippery slope counting down towards Christmas. Again! This is always such a busy time of the year, but this year I am hoping to be a little organized about it.
This little quilt features Aneela Hoey's (just about to be released) new fabric collection Cherry Christmas for Moda. Aneela very kindly send me a selection of prints from her new collection for preview, and I absolutely couldn't wait to get the machine whirring.
Cherry Christmas is not too overly Christmas-y, and I have enjoyed working with the collection as well as stash fabrics to get my fix of fabric play, for a balance of colors and prints that don't shout CHRISTMAS.
I have also already had my weekly dose of quilting. Lots of straight organic vertical lines - unmarked - which gives this quilt a lovely soft hand and smooth drape. The backing fabic is also by Aneela: Tortoises from the Little Apples collection.
For binding I have used a scallop stripe fabric in red/white (Ruby - Sundae by Bonnie and Camille) for another understated touch of Christmas.Etsy Store. You can see the listing and more images and details here: A Cherry Christmas Quilt
With thanks to Aneela for allowing me the preview her newest fabric collection; it was a privilege and indeed a joy!
Thank you for stopping by,
