A Friday Finish - Kinder Baby Christmas Quilt

This warm and cuddly quilt is my first finish from the Add-a-Border Robin-style swap I participate with (via Flickr). The original quilt (block) was named Thimbleberries II.

Kinder Baby Christmas, 49" Square
After several people added borders, I added several more. I used some primary-school whimsy while keeping with the Country-Christmas vibe. 
Each border has different, simple FMQ patterns. I tried to avoid planning them, other than I wanted to be fairly consistent in density so that it will shrink evenly, and I wanted somewhat loose so the quilt will be soft with a bit of drape.

I was a bit nervous about this backing - It is an inexpensive quilting flannel from Connecting Threads. There was no pill or fuzz when I pre-washed it though, and I was completely impressed with the quilt-a-bility as well. It did not make a mess of my machine at all!
The label is blank thus far, but at least it is there!
And cute;-)
This completes my March goal with A Year of Lovely Finishes, giving me 2 outta 3 goals met, which really jumps my percentage up for goals achieved this year ;-)

Time to share a Whoop Whoop!

 TGIFF is being hosted from beautiful Berlin this week, by the ever-inspiring Aylin!

And I am joining in with the 'Ho, ho ho and on we Sew' Link Party, hosted this month at Wonky Patchwork. Sally made the sweetest Clara & her Nutcracker Dolls -- Do have a look-see!


  1. What a cute quilt and a great job on the quilting!

  2. It is so cute! And thanks for the info on the Connecting Threads flannel. I'd been looking at it for a while and wondered about the quality.

  3. What a great swap quilt, love your quilting!

    Would love you to link this up to our monthly Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Link Party at

  4. Sorry, I'm slightly late visiting here, from 'Ho,ho, ho', but what a gorgeous quilt. I love the way you've worked those colours together, your quilting looks great and those stars really add the perfect touch. My favourite kinds of quilts are where all the different elements work together to make it even more gorgeous than its component parts - if that makes sense! And your quilt really does that for me. Thank you for you kind words on my Christmas make too and for linking up.
