One of the reasons that I rarely make holiday quilts is that I start them, get distracted by something else, and then all of a sudden the holiday passes and I never finish the quilt. It has happened on almost every holiday-related quilt I have made.
A couple of years ago, I started a Christmas version of my Nancy quilt pattern
a few weeks before Christmas and you will never guess what happened . . . let's just say that there is a reason why this blog post didn't show up two years ago. The finished quilt top has been sitting around for 2 years and I just recently got it quilted and bound.
Even though it isn't December, I didn't want this quilt to get lost again so here is a Christmas in July post. This quilt is quick (it's strip pieced) and easy to put together and worked very nicely with a variety of solids from my stash.
The backing fabric is actually a flannel flat sheet that I picked up at Target a couple of years ago. The binding is Kona Navy.
One interesting thing about this quilt was that I noticed how much I have my piecing has improved in the last couple of years - there were lots of seams that didn't match up very nicely on this quilt. I didn't think I had improved much over the last couple of years, but it is nice to know that I have!
If you would like to make your own version of the Nancy Quilt pattern, you can pick up a copy in the shop!
