🎄 It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas ❄️

We've been having some early snow here in Minnesota. Snow + quilting a Christmas quilt makes one start to feel like Christmas!

Jane bought this beautiful Christmas quilt kit at a quilt shop up north.

There is a lot of gold accent on these fabrics, so I quilted it with gold-colored thread. Isn't this center fabric gorgeous?!

The quilting is called "Just Curls" and mimics the swirls in that center fabric:

The quilting shows up great on the black extra-wide backing!
Beautiful quilt, Jane! This will get a lot of use in the days ahead.
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. Beautiful, I like the quilting pattern. Snow already? Oh my!

  2. Lovely! That's a great quilting pattern for the quilt, and I love how it looks on the back!

  3. Another pretty quilt, Nancy! I like the quilting pattern too, and using gold thread was a grand idea!

  4. I thought it was a little wall hanging until I saw it on your frame! I love those fabrics with a bit of metallic to give it sparkle.

  5. Gosh, that is such pretty fabric with the gold accents! Love the Swirls motif, too. It has the same overall shape as feathers but with fewer opportunities for me to make blobby shapes. I'll put this one in my "to try" folder :)

  6. What a beautiful Christmas quilt! The design feels like a giant poinsettia. I love that gold thread and it looks really great on the back, too.

    1. Don't you love the simplicity and quickness of one huge block?!!

  8. That is a lovely quilt design.
    Snow - brrr.

  9. It's the perfect design for that lovely quilt. The holidays are right around the corner! I'm just not ready for snow yet. It was 77 here today - I was in shorts and flip flops. But it won't last. In a couple days the temps will drop down to normal. I just hope the snow doesn't show up for a while. :)

  10. That quilt is absolutely stunning! I love the gold quilting. It's beautiful.

  11. Hi Nancy,
    I am now humming a certain Christmas song now . . . I wonder where that came from?! Hmm, could it be the title of your post?!! Wow, really lovely quilt. I would be thrilled with how this turned out, as I am sure Jane will be when she sees it! ~smile~ Roseanne

  12. Great Xmas quilt, I love the design and the quilting.

  13. Another lovely quilt made lovelier with your quilting. I can take the snow as long as I'm indoors and snuggle up with a quilt.

  14. Yes! I agree with somethingrosemade - another lovely quilt made lovelier with your quilting! The roses on the border seem to pop into 3D! So beautiful!

  15. Wow! What a beautiful quilt! You did an amazing job! The gold thread added just the right touch to set off the beauty of your quilt! �� Reminds me of the Christmas quilts my grandma and mom made and quilted.
    Thank you for sharing!:)
    Blessed Holidays! �� Jean
