Christmas in July with Patchwork Christmas!

Okay, so I had the bug to make another Patchwork Christmas and I wanted to make this new quilt in a totally different colorway. I wanted to have the Christmas Tree looked like it was flocked by using white, blue and grey fabrics.  Of course I used a Fat Quarter Bundle from Green Fairy Quilts. The bundle used is called Forest Frost Glitter by Sentimental Studios, which unfortunately we don't have any more, but worked perfectly for this tree. This pattern is so fabulous and right now I have it on sale for only $5! As well as all my patterns for the month of July.

All of this quilt top was made using my stash of fat quarters, except of course the yardage for the binding and the red border.  The fabric used for the presents came from Basic Grey Christmas prints. I quilted it using a cute Christmas tree edge to edge panto by Patricia Ritter. 

This picture does not show the glitter in the fabric as well as I would like, but in person it glistens and is so beautiful - like freshly fallen snow, something I hardly get to see because I live in the desert. 

The candy cane binding was the perfect finish to this adorable quilt.  I had so much fun making this quilt again, and I hope that you enjoy making yours too!  Make sure to share your quilt on social media using the hashtags #patchworkchristmas and #patchworkchristmasquilt and #judimadsen

I am always grateful for my darling husband, Clint - he's in the background a lot, but it's fun when I can actually get a picture of him. He's a great holder for my quilts! 

This is the original quilt, which I love, but now I have 2 quilts to love, use and enjoy during the Christmas season. It will be here before you know it!

Love this quilt, can I ask what quilting pattern you used on the red and gray one? I'm glad you still blog, because I'm old school and don't know about twitter or hashtag. Judi, your my favorite longarm quilter.
