corner bakery christmas quilt

This week's finish:
My main quilting project this week and this month was to finish this Christmas quilt.

The middle section is Carrie Nelson's pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.  Reveille is the name of the pattern from her book "another Bite of Schnibbles".  And the fabric for that middle part is Sweetwater's "Count down to Christmas".

Several months ago, as we sat waiting for our food at the Corner Bakery in Salt Lake, I was very intrigued by this card, specifically with the checkered top.  So, I took a picture of it and decided to incorporate it into my Christmas quilt.

This darling Christmas laundry hanging out to dry is called "Christmas Cherry" by Aneela Honey for Moda,

The free motion quilting design for the border is from Judy Madsen from Green Fairy Quilts.  Doesn't the stripped binding work nice?

I love this free motion quilting on the white squares.   It is Angela Walter's design from here

The back is a soft flannel from Joann's.

It's a small lap size, 42" x 55".  Perfect for Christmas company who are a bit chilly and need something over their legs.

love love love it!

I hope you had a Merry Christmas.


   . . . thank you Amandajean.


  1. Love how something caught your eye and inspired you to incorporate it into your quilt! I imagine that is how all the professional quilt designers are able to crank out several patterns by finding inspiration from daily surroundings.

  2. What a fun little quilt! Isn't it amazing how inspiration can come from anywhere?!

  3. Very cute, and how great to have your Christmas quilt already done for next year :)


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments :)
