The Stockings Were Hung... A Christmas Quilt

Stephanie pieced this super duper cute Christmas quilt. She's ahead of schedule for next year. :)
She brought it to me for machine quilting, she liked the way I had quilted my Skittles quilt so she wanted something similar in the black background.
You can't tell much from this picture but this quilt is the perfect example, in my opinion, of when you should use black batting. I used Quilters Midnight Dream batting, it quilted beautifully and I love the result that it helped to create in Stephanie's quilt.

Thanks for letting me machine quilt your darling Christmas quilt Stephanie!

All of the machine quilting techniques that are shown on this quilt are taught in my book, Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting.

  1. It's a beautiful quilt! But there's only one thing missing... Can you guess? Yes, the chimney! :) Love the fonts She used and the style of the quilt, it's so interesting to see everything on the black background. The quilting is fantastic, as it is always! Love the escargot and pebble combination! And the favorite swirls, of course! :)
