Dear Mr. Claus Christmas Quilt

September 29, 2013 by Angie

My second quilt is finished and I love it! It’s so snuggly and Christmasy. I’m so glad it’s finished long before Christmas so I can put it out on our bed right after Thanksgiving and enjoy it for the entire Christmas season.

I really love all the fabrics in it. The green binding is so pretty next to the white borders. I’m also very happy with how the cross hatch quilting came out. It was my first time doing it so it took some work to draw all the quilting lines with my washable marker but it was worth it.
