Holly's Christmas Quilt

 Off to a good start . . .

The pattern is Posh by Chez Moi (free!), found here.
The fabrics are from the Be Merry collection by Riley Blake.

What a fun little quilt!
I cut out all the pieces in one evening,
and had most of the blocks together in a few days.
Originally I had intended to make this quilt larger,
for a double bed, but I ran out of steam.
It will be a lap quilt (aka cuddle quilt!) instead.

My wonderful quilt holder (husband) was wondering if anyone would notice his gloves . . . . it's much colder out now than the last time he held a quilt for me!
But gloves = no complaining, so we went with it!


  1. I didn't notice the gloves at all. The quilt is lovely!

  2. Love that quilt top! Such a fun simple pattern to show off those beautiful prints. Great job!

  3. Darling! A lap quilt sounds perfect!

  4. What a sweet little quilt! Your quilt holder did a great job. :)

  5. Och, the gloves fit in relatively well ;o) Love those big blocks!

  6. Rest assured that your husband's gloves cannot be seen from Australia!! Lovely quilt!

  7. A Christmas cuddle quilt will be perfect! this is so cute.

  8. That's a cute quilt. My WM also does the same thing for me - in fact, there's a quilt top on today's post that he is holding!

  9. Love it and love the fabrics - so cute!

  10. I just found your blog through the Farmer's Wife Yahoo discussion. What beautiful things you make! I am loving this quilt and the pillow you made.
