This quilt was created for the shop where I used to work, using lots of prints from Robert Kaufman – mostly Ann Kelle’s Jingle collection with a few other Remix dots, and some Michael Miller Ta Dots. I love the graphic simplicity and cheerful colors of all of these prints (aren’t those snowmen cute?) and it was fun to put them together in a quick quilt.
I sat and bound it one night while watching a show with my family on ESPN about Bo Jackson. Brought back lots of memories of living in the early 90’s. And it made me feel a little old. But what on earth does that have to do with Christmas or quilts? Pretty much nothing, other than every time I look at that binding, I’ll think of Bo Jackson. Does anyone else do that – associate a project with the show they were watching at the time they created it?
Kits are sold out.

I hope you are all faring well with your own seasonal sewing, to-do lists, roasting chestnuts on an open fire, and the like.
