I had already used the two blue prints in my blue Crazy Nine Patch. I also had another blue print left over from the Decade Quilts, but they were already cut into 2.5" x 7.5" strips so I had to incorporate that as well. Then I saw a post on Crazy Mom Quilts about her Christmas quilts, and I knew the design pictured there on the right would be just perfect.
By the time I finished the top, I remembered why I have stuck to mostly lap size quilts the last several years. It's been a while since I've made a quilt large enough that it's difficult to photograph. Can you spot the odd block in the middle?
The back doesn't really go with the front, but I was pleased I was able to piece it without buying more fabric.
New items purchased to complete this quilt: batting and a second spool of navy thread
Finished size: 52" x 77"
