Christmas Quilt #1

I am making a quilt for my granddaughter for Christmas.  I asked her last summer what colors she would like.  Without hesitation, she said, blue, lime green and gray.
Here we are:

See that chiffon to the left?  I have not sewn on chiffon since prom dresses in high school.  What do you know, it hasn't gotten any easier to manage......

I was inspired by my sister-in-laws quilt I just finished in my last post.  So I made a top similar to that one.

I found some matching velvety rick-rack in my trimmings/ribbons stash drawer, struggled through the chiffon and love how these blocks turned out.

 Here is the finished top.  I am waiting for the lime green backing to arrive.  I plan to use some left over blocks in a horizontal line in the back and also will piece her name on the back.  Can't wait to get started on the back.


  1. Oooooh, she is going to love this quilt! Such pretty colors and the chiffon is a fun accent. Well done!

  2. It is beautiful - I love her color choices!
