A blue Christmas Quilt Top

Look what new top I have to quilt *VBG*. I got this fabric years ago when I worked at Joann's. They came in some goofy snowman cookie jar. Problem was most of the jars were broken so we were "supposed to" mark them down an throw the fqs away. What a waste. One day my friend gave me a bunch of the fqs *SHHHHH* and I've always wanted to make her a quilt of them. Well last week I bit the bullet and started the blocks.I think I threw in 2 extra blue Christmas FQS. And like potato chips, you can't make just one and before you knew it I had 30 blocks made and a bunch of strips leftover I can mix with other blues for a scrappy binding

4 blocks for a blossom

Of course you can't waste the bonus hsts and I made a wall hanging for one of the doors in the house. and FINALLY all the fall ones have been replaced by winter/Christmas ones :)

I love your blue Christmas quilt. What a great change from red, green and gold.

I love it in blue. It is so great and I love the scrappy look. That tree on your header is something! I absolutely love the kitchen theme. So so cute. I'd never have thought of that.

Your blossoms look just wonderful Kim! I'm soooo fond of that particular Bonnie pattern. You've done a great job with it. Hugs, Finn
