After several days of keeping it secret (and I'm terrible at that), I am so glad I finally get to share this fun Christmas ornament quilt with you! The quilt is made with the Santa's Here line from Benartex, and it was so much fun to create!
I wanted to create a quilts that would show off several of the prints in this line, and I wanted the quilt to be a little bit whimsical. If you can't have a bit of whimsy at Christmas, then when can you have it?
I love the rich colors in this collection, as well as the fact that the prints have traditional motifs without looking cartoonish. I included so many more prints than necessary on the front of this quilt, which gave me lots of leftovers for the backing, and even a scrappy binding!
I couldn't resist taking the photos of this one under my Christmas tree. It can't possibly serve it's quilty purpose rolled up under the tree of course, but doesn't it look right at home?
I have created a full tutorial for this quilt, including fabric requirements and cutting diagrams (and it's pretty quick to put together!), so head on over to the Benartex blog, Sew in Love With Fabric to check it out!
