One of my happy moments this last couple of weeks was putting our new Christmas Star Quilt on the bed.
I used to have another Christmas quilt, made of a lot of earthy, rich Alexandar Henry fabrics, but when we painted our bedroom blue, I wanted something lighter. I also wanted something with a lot of pieces, which caused me to lose my mind this summer as I put it together.
But I really like how it looks–all these red-pointed stars in a field of blues. Yes, I know I need to make the shams, but that will have to wait until next year. I’m in the Grading Galaxy and not coming out for a week or two.
I’m also happy to report that there is not one star that is like another, thanks to the great fabric designers of this line: Wintergraphix II. (Here’s a link to AbbiMays Online Quilt Shop, where I bought most of it–looks like they’re already on to Wintergraphix III.) I really enjoyed working on it. I wasn’t very inventive on the back–just large squares of the extra fabrics. Quilting was by DJ Designs–Cathy Kreter did a great job.
