quilt monday


Remember me??! 

I totally got out of the habit blogging  so working on that again this year.

Onto the good stuff!

Our third son asked for a quilt for Christmas. I wasn't going to make him one since I had made him a Christmas quilt for his bed last year. 

But the Wednesday before Christmas, I decided to give it a shot and cut out a quilt. The Friday and Saturday before, I sewed the top together. 

I was able to carve out 2hours on Christmas Eve for quilting.

Almost a Christmas miracle.

This is the Expanding Stars quilt by Quilt Love.

This was one of the fastest quilts I've pieced. And such a great pattern as well.

The center is a Navy print, the inner star and the background are both a white with a black and grey fleck to it.

The olive green is a linen textured fabric and lastly, and probably my favourite, the grey gingham.

The outside triangles are a solid navy and I went with a black binding.

He doesn't like flannel for quilt backings so I had some fun and made pieced up a fun backing for him.

Did I mention how big this quilt is? 
It's a 96inch square.

I wavered too long on what to quilt on this quilt and I finally went with Loop the Loop.

Seriously, I love this quilt. 
I love it so much that I may have started one for myself lol.

Happy Monday!
