Default Christmas String Quilt

This will be for my daughter and her family. I need to wash it, but other than that, it's done. (Finally--this one seemed to take forever. I love Christmas fabric, but even I am a bit tired of it at this point!)

Cute quilt. Did you paper piece or use templates?

I'm very impressed with how you handled both the scrappy part, using SO MANY fabrics, as well as the ORDERLY Arrangement, where there is a controlled beauty that shows how well you planned your Layout. I appreciate seeing your Close-Up photos, to see how the parts were sewn together. Thanks for sharing. I might try this.
