Christmas Collection Blog Hop

I'm happy to be part of Masterpiece Quilting's Christmas Collection Blog Hop today!

And let me tell you, finishing a Christmas quilt in July feels absolutely fantastic. I tend to do a fair amount of holiday gift sewing (usually in late November and December), which means that I'm usually out of time for fun holiday projects. 

Pulling this quilt out in December is going to be a treat! 
I chose to make the "O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging" from the book. It appealed to me because it uses a classic block to make a modern tree shape - simple and easy construction, with clean, fresh results. 


I played around with fabric placement, adding a red center to each block, and upped the "sparkle" in the quilt by using two different metallic gold on cream prints for the background. I went scrappy for the greens and reds, mixing mottled tonals with plaids and stripes from Modern Quilt Studio's Warp & Weft collection. 


The rows of blocks have alternating background prints, and I accented this with straight line quilting. 

Thanks for stopping by! To see more of my quilts, follow me on Instagram.
