quilt monday

hello, hello! happy new year! I didn't mean to complete abandon the blog over Christmas but school ended and we jumped full steam ahead into Christmas fun.

Like I have previously said, I made one gift this year for Christmas(and I don't think I even got a picture of the finished quilt lol). I did get a few new things done for me though.

I really wanted a new Christmas quilt; last year I had drooled over Kate Spain's Solstice line and I was thrilled to find some for this year.

The pattern is called Ribbon Star from Missouri Star Quilts(tutorial can be found here).
I didn't make the quilt exactly, I left the sashing out; I wanted the quilt to be a certain size.

I didn't want to go with a Christmas panto for the quilting so I went with one that was similar to the print in the fabrics called Antique Lace.

The quilt has such great movement to it. I might have to make another!

I ended up having almost half a jelly roll left when I finished so I made up a table runner.

Super cute and super simple.

I went with a meander just so I could get it quilted quickly and because I couldn't decide what else to do lol.

I even had enough blocks to make a second one of these. Which I plan on quilting today soon as I make it into work that is :)
