Mainly because of this fabric…….
|Holiday Sparkle by Nina Seven for Wilmington Prints|
This gorgeous fabric was used in the quilt top to compliment the main focus fabrics – Holiday Frost by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass & Co. I was quite taken by this Holiday Sparkle fabric – the dark gray background, the colourful text phrases, and the circular dots reminding me of snow flakes!
And then, once I had made up my mind to use this fabric both to name and to bind the oblongagon quilt, I mulled over the idea of how to make this into a truly fabulous finish.
Backing fabrics from left to right are…
- large text print telling the history of the Christmas tree (love it!)
is called “Tidings of Great Joy” by J. Wecker Fisch for Quilting Treasures
- dark gray stripe is “Animal Alphabet Flash Cards” by Lisa DeJohn for Red Rooster Fabrics
- and the dots are by Andover Fabrics
Listing this one in my Etsy shop.
Countdown to Christmas… 76 days to go!
