Christmas tree quilt

17 03 2018

When I was on my quilting retreat with friends in February, I put this Christmas tree top together — I’d made the trees back in January, but hadn’t had a chance to finish off the quilt top with the extra white fabric. The trees are made from fabric scraps in blues, greens, and purples. I based my trees on this pattern from Craftsy: https://www.craftsy.com/quilting/article/scrappy-christmas-tree-quilt-block/. I added a yellow, orange, or red swatch of fabric at the top of each tree to emulate a star or light.

I quilted it with wobbly vertical lines, with the occasional ‘snowflake’ interspersed in amongst them. And I added Christmas stars and radiating ‘lights’ at the top of each tree, in a gold metallic thread. It’s bound in the same white fabric as used in the rest of the quilt top.

This quilt is available for sale from my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/587276632/christmas-tree-lap-quilt

Two days = 3 quilt tops made | Rhonda Bracey: At Random

[…] For two of them, I used my own Asian-style fabrics and I’ll post pics of them later, once I’ve finished binding them. (see https://rhondabracey.com/2018/03/17/blue-grey-and-gold-asian-style-quilt/ and https://rhondabracey.com/2018/03/17/red-and-gold-asian-style-quilt/). The other was a Christmas tree quilt: https://rhondabracey.com/2018/03/17/christmas-tree-quilt/ […]
