Rectangel Reverie Palooza

Lat year I found out about Monica of The Happy Zombie.
I love her, her posts are so funny, and she knows her stuff.
Not to mention how CUTE her fabrics are.

Last year she posted her quilt called Rectangle Reverie.
I fell in love with it, I had been buying red and white Christmas fabric for years.
Every year I would go the Joann's and get whatever red and white fabric they had.
When I saw Monica's quilt I knew that I was finally going to put my collection to good use.

At this same time Grandma Kath wanted to make quilts for her daughter's.
She has never made a quilt and wanted to learn how.
I figured that this would be an easy one, with no corner's to match.

Since the pattern calls for ten fat quarters, and I had ten half yard pieces,
we made two red ones. Then headed down to our friendly neighborhood Joann's.
When we got there we found all the Christmas fabrics on sale 90% off,
and with Kath's teacher discount, are you kidding me!!!  

Kath liked the Debbie Mum's best, so that is what we got for the other two.

Did you want to see?

This one is mine, how cute is it!

Here is the back

My little back patch with all the fabrics from the front.

I love it and can't wait to make some more.

Here is the quilting, Picnik didn't like my pictures this morning, so I couldn't highlight it.
The red ones got snow flakes.

The Debbie Mum's got holly berries and stuff.

I am so happy with how they turned out.

How many quilts did you make for Christmas?


  1. Oh Robyn!!! OH. MY. GOSH! You are a quilting MACHINE! I love your fabric choices, and your quilting - everything! And that you made FOUR of them (and I'm glad you made one for yourself, too)!! You have no idea how mushy gushy and happy I'm feeling right now. Thank you for sharing with me and all the nice lovins' you've bestowed upon me!! You made my MONTH! XXOO!!

  2. I like them a lot! Good job. I've only made one Christmas quilt. Dropped it off at the quilter's studio today. I am really uninspired by it but I know the recipient will like it so I guess that's what matters ;-)
