Christmas Cheer Quilt

After last weeks share of a Spring Market quilt, I am being sure that this Fall Market quilt doesn't get forgotten ;)   I didn't go to Fall Market this year, but I was super excited to get to make a quilt that was there :)  My wonderful friends at Moda asked if I could make a Christmas Cheer quilt and I just loved sewing it up. I mean, how can you not love that first off, it's a row quilt which are always so fun and second, it's Christmas, and it certainly made me feel that wonderful Christmas Cheer!!!

This quilt uses Bonnie and Camille's new Vintage Holiday fabric that was shown at Fall Market.  It will be coming to shops in April of 2018 and you are so going to want to scoop some up.  I just love the prints and colors and there is even some silver metallic hints in the line.  So fun!!! 

And as I said before, I just love sewing row quilts!!!  I just love sewing all of the different blocks and seeing them all come together into the quilt.   Of course, they take a little longer to cut out, but luckily I don't mind that step to much :)   And aren't these rows just to cute!!!  Those stars finish at 4", I love little patchwork!!!   And those Santa Hats are just so fun, especially with the silver metallic stripe on the band and ball :)   I really had fun piecing each and every row and every row became my new favorite.

When it came time to quilt it, I decided for a favorite all over Curly Q.   This really lets each of the pieced rows stand out for itself, and it is nice and fast, and considering I was doing this quilt in that good ol' market time crunch, fast was important :) 

And I just love the wonderful texture it gives the quilt as well.  Doesn't that just make you want to snuggle up in front of a fire place and listen to some Christmas music :)

And that is Christmas Cheer :)   Thank you so much to my good friends at Moda!!!  I am so glad that I got to sew this incredibly cheerful quilt together and have a little part of Fall Market :)  And you better believe I was listening to Christmas Tunes the whole time I was sewing and now, I think they are here to stay until December, and I just love it!!!

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

Linking up this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, and Myra's :)
