Finished - Christmas Plaidish Quilt

Generally I am disciplined when it comes to discretionary fabric purchases except for a few categories such as Charley Harper prints and Christmas fabric of any style.  At the beginning of the pandemic (can anyone remember that far back?) I spread out my Christmas fabric collection in all its various shapes and forms and concluded that it was time to actually USE these precious slices of cotton.  

The Plaidish quilt is a FREE pattern by Erica of Kitchen Table Quilting.  It is an exercise in color value that yields some pretty great quilts as evidenced by many beautiful finishes. 

I couldn't be happier with my version of this gem of a pattern.  Looking closely you'll notice I used a wide range of fabrics that might not normally play well together. 

This quilt was gifted to one of the most important people in my life who is battling pancreatic cancer (like a super warrior!).  I have a goal to give everyone I love a quilt and she was long overdue for one of my creations.  

Regarding my Christmas fabric collection, this is what it currently looks like after finishing three quilts this holiday season and several last.  In conclusion, I am at zero risk of running low on this category.

Of course, in the venn diagram of my fabric purchases is my growing Charley Harper holiday fabric. No apologies!

Wishing you all the best for 2022!
