Merry Christmas!!

I am so excited to share this project with you.

I think many of you all know how I love Christmas projects. I have always been a big fan of Christmas quilts. I have a whole section of my stash dedicated to Christmas Fabrics. fun!

I really love working with Benartex. Great company with so many beautiful lines by designers we all know and love.

I chose to use a line called Deer Festival, you can find that here. 

I love-love this line because of the metallic gold and the elegant designs. Reindeer are just magical, right?

These are the 3 fabrics that I used along with solid white.

I decided to use it with my pattern called FarmHouse Star:

It’s a simple pattern. But I had to put it out into the world myself because as a longarm quilter my heart loves simple quilts. When you quilt a simple quilt that contains quiet colors you can make it shine. You only need 4 fabrics for this quilt. For some of you who have made a few of my quilts ….you will know that is a strange concept for me. A few of my patterns require 20 fabrics. LOL  You can this pattern in my Etsy shop, here. 

With my original I quilted a design on the computer ( because of lack of time) with the crazy detailed design and I love it!

Christmas in July and a line with deer..kind of requires a tractor, Don’t ya think?

Here is a full picture:

It’s such a lovely quilt. Pictures don’t do it justice because of the gold metallic print.

    Beautiful quilt, and excellent use of the fabrics! I am always at a loss for things to make with some prints, especially directional ones. The standard sawtooth star is so ordinary. Your quilt makes it so much more interesting!
