Customer Christmas quilt

This week I have been quilting this cute Christmas quilt that Randa made. The blocks were paper pieced. Randa said she prefered straight line quilting, so keeping that in mind I tried to come up with different designs that would coordinate with each block.  The internet and books are great inspiration! First I stitched in the ditch the green around the block, and the block itself and stitched egg and dart design in the sashings. Then I came back and did each block design and matched thread color to the fabric. Randa I hope you like it, I think it came out really nice!  Thanks for letting me quilt it for you!

The quilt is 60x60, Glide thread on top, Sew Fine in bobbin, Hobbs 80/20 batting.

 These Santa's have a brick design in the background.

 I love these star blocks!
The tree blocks were really fun to stitch!
