Cheer and Merriment Quilt!!

 It's my last day of sampler sharing for Christmas in July with my good friends at Moda Fabrics ;)     And today's quilt is just a stunner!!   This is Cheer and Merriment by Fancy That Design House and it is just gorgeous!!!   

I was thrilled when I was asked to make this quilt!! First off,  I absolutely love Fancy That Design House fabrics, (I am already secret sewing with her next two lines :)  This Cheer and Merriment fabric line has such a sophisticated way of bringing Christmas!!!  Just beautiful!!!   But I was also super excited about the piecing in it!!!   

The 3 blocks down the center are beautiful panels, but the rest of it is all pieced, including those tiny snowflakes!!!   How fun is that!!!  I always love a little challenge to get all my tiny points to line up perfectly and this quilt was just so happy making to see it all come together with such crisp and tight piecing.   It finishes at 58 x 66 so that really gives you a good idea of the size of the piecing, so fun!!  

And when it came time to quilt it, I wanted to keep it elegant so I went with all over swirls and echoed paisleys.   I just love how it gives so much flow and texture to the design.  And you all know my favorite 402 Pearl was perfect for this quilt ;)

So if you want to have some super fun piecing, and a beautiful finish to show for it, this is the quilt for you!!!  Cheer and Merriment fabrics are shipping now and Fat Quarter Shop has a Cheer and Merriment Quilt Kit already available.  So many options for so much fun Christmas in July sewing!!!!  

And now this quilt, along with the other 2 I shared this week, is making its way across US quilt shops.  I just love that when these come home they have been all over, I wish I could get them a passport of something to see just how far they traveled ;)   Wouldn't that be neat :)   I am looking forward to this  Cheer and Merriment quilt to return, and if it makes it in time for Christmas, it is going on my wall!!!! 

And that is it for today !!

I am hoping to work on a few more Christmas in July projects for my Quilting Marathon and look forward to sharing them soon!!

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