All The Trimmings - HQM Quilt 17

 It is Week 17 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and we have one more Christmas in July!!!  And I am so excited to share this finish!!!    This was a mystery quilt along that I did last year with Fat Quarter Shop and I had so much fun making the quilt top!!!    And I can't help but smile at the finish, it is just so happy making!!!

Christmas Fabrics are oh so fun, and paired with a Black Grunge background, talk about pop!!!  I used Lella Boutique's Christmas Morning Fabrics for this project and I just love the happy prints in this line.   They are so cheery and festive and again, pair so nicely on the Black Grunge background :)   This is the quilt I will be donating to Festival of Trees this year and I think it will be a nice Modern Twist on all of the Christmas quilts ;)  

All of the patterns for the blocks are still available from Fat Quarter Shop.  The original quilt is a baby size, but I just made additional blocks to make mine larger.   So mine finished at 66" x 72" so it makes a nice lap size perfect for snuggling up in for Christmas ;) 

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on a classic.   All over swirls for the win.   Simple and yet so fun for giving lots and lots of texture!!   And I used a nice charcoal colored thread that blended great in the background and gives a nice little pop on all of the piecing ;)  

And now this All the Trimmings quilt is ready to be donated and loved!!!  And seriously, this totally makes me want to make another Christmas quilt with a black background.   Not near as traditional but wow, what a statement piece it makes when it is done :)  And what a way to finish up Christmas in July!! 

And that is Quilt #17 - All the Trimmings ;)  17 Down and only 9 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   I made it to Single Digits!!! 

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

Pin It!
