Winter Quilt Completed!

I posted the WIP for this quilt before Christmas and finished it up by the New Year! It could have been done by Christmas…. but I was kind of busy making other gifts πŸ™‚

Even though I knew I wanted to make a winter quilt, I was definitely inspired by this triangle quilt. I followed this tutorial for the angled binding.

All the fabrics in this quilt are so fun! I picked up the striped fabric first, and the light blue+ red+green combo was perfect – I will need to find more of it for future projects. I love the bows and reindeer heads!!

Quilting took a little longer than I expected… there are a lot more lines that I thought…

I’ve spray basted my past 2 quilts without a problem, but this one was not working! Maybe the minky was too smooth??

Spray basting still works much better for me than pin basting…. The quilt too stays much smoother and rarely puckers.

Prepping for the binding!

This quilt is a little narrow for a throw quilt, but it’s still cozy and beautiful.
