Deco the Halls is one of my all-time favorite quilts and I am thrilled to enter it in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I love the simple color pallet, the continuous design, and the bold graphic shapes. I designed this quilt about 6 weeks ago. I had an idea in my head that wouldn't go away, so one night I stayed up way too late getting this design down on paper. The white shapes represent the glass ornaments that we decorate our Christmas tree with each year. They especially remind me of vintage glass ornaments that covered Granny's tree every year.
This quilt is 60x70. This quilt uses the Quick Curve Ruler to cut the curved pieces and square up the blocks. It is designed to be a holiday throw quilt that gives a great splash of color and festivity to any room. I quilted it on my Gammill longarm with a medium density so it wouldn't be too stiff. The pattern is available and can be purchased here.
The silver dot is a Michael Miller print which sparkles and catches just the right amount of light to give it that magical Christmas feel. The white has a light gray print and is from Moda's Blitzen collection. The red is solid.
Are you in the Holiday mood yet? Christmas is two months minus one day away!!!! I have one thing checked off my list this year - Deco the Halls!
