Finished feels good

 Yesterday I started and finished quilting "Christmas Cards."  I put the last stitch on the binding at precisely 10:00 p.m. 

The Card Trick blocks came from an exchange. One of them was larger than the others (12" rather than 9").  Another came after I had set the sixteen.  I didn't want to disassemble what I'd done, nor did I want to make three more blocks (to total 20).  I pieced the large block into the back and I used the last block as the label.  The quilt is 66 x 66.  (More about this quilt design is in this post and preceding it.)

I used red thread. I outline-quilted the "cards" and meander-quilted the "logs."

This quilt will be raffled at our AAUW holiday luncheon. 


  1. I like the name the Card Trick block suggests. NICE to have a Christmas Quilt finished for this year!

  2. Nice way to use the larger block and the extra. Love the quilt, Nann.

  3. Well done I am sure you will enjoy it this year - I must get to my Christmas ufos soon - thanks for the inspiration

  4. This turned out so well. Funny how we can create a new design for the back to use the blocks left over. This should garner some good money for AAUW.

  5. Nann, the Christmas Card quilt is just beautiful and I LOVE the setting you used. I'm sorry you did not get all of your blocks on time to use them. I hope it raises plenty $$ for your group.

  6. Finished looks good too! :)

    Love from Indiana! ~bonnie

  7. Congrats on the winning $ for this. I'm sure that feels good for such a great quilt.
