New Christmas Quilt

I finished my Christmas quilt! The fabric is Yuletide Magic by Erin McAllister for Benartex. The fabric is beautiful, in such pretty colors and feels great. I used my favorite disappearing nine patch pattern, as it's great for charm squares, which is what I had. I also had 4 single yard cuts of the deer blender pattern, so I made a pieced back. The batting is Hobbs cotton, unbleached, which is great to quilt on.

I decided to hand quilt this one, with Christmas trees in every other large square, and then vertical stripes between the blocks. I really like the narrow black binding.

While I tend like more modern quilt patterns and fabrics, this quilt is really pretty and makes me want it to be Christmas!
