After some planning I decided that I wanted a couple of things:
1. To use my Zola Quilt pattern because it kind of resembles wrapped gifts.
2. To use a variety of solids that didn't scream Christmas.
Isn't it fun? I am feeling pretty pleased with it myself. It has red and green - but also pink, yellow, orange, and even purple. It will fit in perfectly with my not-color-coordinated, all-bought-on-clearance Christmas decor.
I did go a little literal with the backing and binding on this quilt - the backing fabric is Gingham Play in Cherry and the binding is Cotton Couture Spearmint.
Here are the Cotton Couture colors I used in my quilt:
Right now I am just ecstatic that I actually finished a holiday quilt before the actual holiday. I'm off to give this one a wash so we can start using it!
