A Charming Barn Quilt for Christmastime

My favorite little spot at Christmastime.
Setting up my Willow Tree Nativity set collection is always the highlight of decorating for Christmas. 
I love its peacefulness and joy.
This year I made and added the Joy to the World wood sign. Perfect finishing touch!

My favorite quilt to feature in this spot is my A Charming Barn Quilt featuring Return to Winter's Lane with Kate & Birdie for Moda Fabrics.
It just "fits" so nicely.

New pattern: Star Blossom

This pattern has been percolating in my head for a while, and when I saw Christmas Morning by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics for the first time I knew it was the perfect match.

Star Blossom finishes at 30" x 30" and is written for yardage or fat quarters. Grab 1/4 to 1/3 yard cuts of six prints or 6 fat quarters, add some background, binding, and backing and you are all set to whip up a quick little quilt to use as a wall hanging or table topper.  

How about this center? Isn't the pinwheel within the star so striking?!

The diagonal grid straight line quilting is just perfect for a Christmastime quilt.

Not sure what it is about this diagonal straight-line quilting, but it just "feels" like Christmas, the perfect touch of cozy.

The Star Blossom quilt pattern is quick enough to finish up before the holidays. 

Happy quilting : )
