Another finish to share today! This is the Churn Dash Christmas Quilt I made using 9 red on white background churn dash blocks from the October block of the month at the Proper Bostonian Quilters Guild.
The cat is the "disruption" in this quilt. Once the quilt was pieced, that mostly white block didn't read very well in a row of mostly white churn dash blocks. It appeared to extend into the block above it and the block below. I figured the quilting could improve it, and that's exactly what happened.
I quilted around the margins of the cat block and quilted concentric circles around the cat. The inner circle is quilted with dark green thread and the next to last circle is quilted with very pale green. Most of the thread used for quilting is a very light silver/grey color. That grey looked much better white on the quilt's red back.
The batting in this quilt is wool. Perfect for cold Yule Season nights. The binding is a peppermint candy print fabric! I love peppermint!
