Christmas Circles Quilt

A few weeks ago, I saw this pin and I knew what I wanted to make for Ellie's Christmas quilt. I had been wanting to use some of Ann Kelle's Jingle line and wanted a design that would show off the relatively large prints. (You can see progress on this quilt here and here).

Christmas Circles Quilt

I finished it up about a week and half ago. I quilted lines 1/4" away from the seams on both sides. Nice and simple to not distract from the circles! I bound it using a blue and white snowflake print that I found in the remnant bin at JoAnn's. I don't have a picture of the backing, but I used a large print that has Christmas lights on it and some scraps to bring it up to size (penguins and wreaths). One of the scraps is actually a vintage print that I inherited somehow. The white background is Kona White.

It turned out pretty cute and every kid who sees it has fun 'finding' all the cute prints on it.

  1. I love this! I've been on the fence about a christmas quilt. I don't know that I will be able to squeak out the time this year- I don't quilt real fast. But I'm really digging this idea! -Rachel
