If your looking for that quick holiday gift...
There is still time and this one is perfect.
This is Festival of Trees from All People Quilt.com
It's a great way to do a little stash busting too.
My version is a little different from the pattern. I chose not to use the sashing in between the blocks. Why you ask?
Well, I have fallen in love with polar fleece backings.
It quilts like a dream and the texture it gives, is so much fun.
It's a little difficult to see this here, but you get the idea.
Standard Polar Fleece is 52" wide.
(or at least mine was)
Keeping my quilt under that by a few inches, allows for no piecing of the backing. I'm not to sure I would even try to piece polar fleece, but I'd love to hear from any who have done so.
I used no batting. It drapes so nice and is snuggly to curl up in on those cold winter nights.
