IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE .....

...........I can't say it.

I love the heat. I don't want it to be fall or winter or anything.  I do however, love Blitzen, this years Christmas line by Basic Grey for Moda. So very lovely.

This is what I made this summer.  I called it Blitzen Squared.


Isn't the quilting great? Linda quilted it for me. I wanted texture, so she did giant poinsettias all over to mimic the border print.
I love it.


The other day when my daughter-in-law was over, she said she really liked it. Perhaps that's one Christmas gift taken care of.

Have you started your Christmas gift making yet?

I love how the small corners give a transparency effect.

I did sew one Christmas present in July; no others yet though!

That is a gorgeous quilt, but are you kidding me? did you really say "it's beginning to look a lot like" Oh my goodness! Now that you mention it, it is only 3 months away! Yikes!!!!

Oh, I'm glad you didn't say it but now it's in my head anyway, thank you very much! :-) LOVE that quilt, and those fabrics. First time I've come across them. Thanks very much for that, too! Uh-oh - I feel the need to internet fabric shop...

It's gorgeous!! I've thought about my christmas sewing, but havn't started yet..... although i have bought a couple of toys for grandkids already!

Deborah said...

Just beautiful. I love the pattern. Is it one you can share?

Books_Bound said...

Pretty! I like that that fabric isn't so overtly Christmas-y. You could probably call it a "winter quilt," or maybe I'm just a lazy seasonal decorator. :)

Love the quilt and even though it is Christmas inspired it looks like something that can be used year around. Lovely pattern. Love the colors.

Beautiful! I have some of that fabric too. I love the looks of the overlapping squares.

Debbie said...

I may gift a couple of my zakka projects, but otherwise, NOTHING! Love your quilt though!

I have just got my grubby mitts on some of this fabric and it is wonderful, and I'm usually a totally non-christmas fabric, non-moda kinda gal. It's soft and subtle and wintery and yummy.

I love your quilt.

That quilt is beautiful! If you designed it, you should really submit it to Mode Bakeshop with a tutorial. Fabulous!
