    Christmas I Spy Quilt

    I thought I would post this recently finished Christmas I Spy quilt, made from all sorts of fabrics I've received in swaps (with some from my stash and my mother's). I had so much fun pouring over the combinations and thinking about how it would go together. The backing is a piece of "Christmas Windows" that I got a few years back in anticipation of an I Spy. Truly love that fabric! I pieced "Christmas Words" with it and used some dark green holly fabric to bind. The quilting is FAR from perfect, but at least I was able to do it myself. (Usually I send my quilts out.)

    Really nice quilt. I like the way you combined the two fabrics for the back. Clever.

    Cheerful quilt, and I LOVE that window fabric on the back! Do you know what line of fabric it is?

    I remember it was called "Christmas Windows" and that I got it on clearance (can you believe that?!) at JoAnns a few years back. I bought the rest of the bolt! You might try etsy or ebay? Good luck!

    I really like it. I enjoyed doing "I spy" as I studied each block. I spy cardinals! Love anything with cardinals. The back is so cool. Congrats on doing the quilting yourself, and I think the diagonals turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

    Love it! It's a great quilt.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Really cute quilt I have to say I'm crazy about the back particularly the couple kissing under the mistletoe, so sweet.
