12 Days of Christmas for Mom and Dad

Hi!  Here is the Christmas quilt I made for my parents this year. They loved it so much, they refuse to warm themselves with it, and are planning to hang it as a decorative quilt next year! : )

It took me a long time to decide how to do the improvisation blocks, but once I got going, the blocks went fast! 

I quilted it in squares along each piece, and bound it with the Kona cotton grass green, the same as the backing.  

The fabric is the 12 days of Christmas line by Kate Spain for Moda (plus a few other fabrics for color). I just love how it came out!!

Under the tree - yes, baby loves it under there!

I intentionally made the center squares off balance!

I like it with the green grass!

You can kind of see the quilting on the back

  1. Love this quilt! This Christmas, we snuggled under the "Lily Christmas Afghan". I love it. It is so soft. I am now wearing the beautiful "Lily neck scarf" you gave to me last year. It is keeping me toasty in this 15 degree weather!


Please leave a comment! I'm new at this and need your help to make it better! Also, I'd be very honored if you follow me! : )
