When Jana asked me if I wanted to take part in a Quilt-A-Long to make this I instantly said yes. I love Camille Roskelly (have 2 of her books!) and wanted to make a Christmas quilt. This seemed perfect for it.
The pattern is made up of 8" and 16" sawtooth stars and as I was making mine from scraps, (Joy by Kate Spain, a little bit of Riley Blake, some new Folk Art Holiday and leftover solids Kona Navy, Snow and Ash), I was happy enough to make a smaller size.
Much and all as I love the look of this quilt, the repetitive nature of so many 8" blocks makes me happy I made a child quilt or throw sized quilt. Leaving out the last column and the two bottom rows gives a 48" x 56" quilt and was perfect for the scraps I had on hand.
This is destined as a late baby present - sorry Charly you can't keep this one (even though I quite like it in the study too!)
There will be a final link up on Jana Machado's blog for the Quilt-A-Long finish over the next few weeks and linking up to the Friday Finshes this week at Crazy Mom Quilts, TGIFF and Can I get a Whoop Whoop!
