Default 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!
