Kathy’s Swell Christmas quilt!
There are Christmas quilts, and then there is this Swell Christmas quilt, made by Kathy and pattern/fabrics by Urban Chiks. It’s a box kit from Moda. The Santa makes the quilt, actually he is most of the quilt. And, so adorable at that!!
Seriously, that Santa!!
Kathy and I looked through a bunch of swirly/circle designs, and she decided on this one...Gingersnap by Apricot Moon Designs. I saw it on a winter quilt a quilty friend of mine quilted recently...so I was excited to see how it quilted out, especially on Santa’s beard.
These throw back traditional fabrics and colors by Urban Chiks are such a hit. I used Antique Cream A&E Perma Core 30 Tex thread and my favorite 8020 Winline batting.
Beard pic...see what I mean. That quilty texture is just so fun!
The backing fabric is equally fun!! Christmas quilting has started...excited to see what is next.
Thank you for coming by! Happy sewing.
