It's beginning to look a lot like...

House Top and Pine Forest


 A perfect beginning of the holiday season! 
I finished my very first Christmas quilt this year before I began decorating!
I made this quilt top last year and blogged about it here but had decided to hand quilt so it had to wait until the time was right. 
 
It is lightly hand quilted with white Perle Cotton, bound with pieced bias binding and hung in the hallway ready to greet the boys when they come home this holiday season!  


 This is how I decked the hall this year. 
Hanging in the far end is my 'Confetti' quilt.


I included my quilt 'Cranberry Sauce' for some photo fun!


  Scraps were from the basket. I was cleaning and sorting out the scraps and decided to make a red and green quilt, my way


Nine blocks include fabrics from so many quilts I made in the past.
It is a true scrap quilt.
It will brighten up the hallway for many more years to come.

Time to start a new quilt for next year!

  11. I especially like the color range tending toward warmer reds and cool greens. Christmas colors without being completely "traditional" is a beautiful expression of your personal style. I also love the pearle thread quilting. Thanks for showing that detail in your photos.

  15. That is such a festive quilt. I especially like the border. It just goes on, like the borders of older quilts, rather than being pieced to go round the corner!

    This has such great movement and a playfulness.
    The border is awesome!
    hooray - lovely Sujata
