I’ve been working on this quilt for a little while now (as seen here.) A very generous friend gave me a FQ bundle of these fabrics (Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda) in a swap last summer. It’s been fun to decide what to do with them and frankly I kind of made it up as I went along. At first I was thinking of a something like Mr. Roboto only on a bigger scale. Well it looked too blah when I laid out the blocks so I cut off the edges of the blocks and re-sewed them back onto other blocks to make it more interesting. And I liked it much better.
I ended up buying a half yard of two blacks one for the black border and one for the binding and that’s all for this whole quilt. I love the prints in this collection and I like the pop of the black with the traditional Christmas colors.
