I am so super excited that one of my quilts is featured in the December 2016 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. I may have to have a Holiday Party and invite everyone over to help me celebrate. But since I can’t do that I will just have to share my Holiday Party Quilt on the newly redesigned cover of this wonderful issue.
If I were to have a party I would need to borrow all of their props to use by my quilt and I would need to clean my house, so I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon.
I thought I would share how this quilt came to be. Do you remember the old commercials from the 80’s for doublemint gum?
Two Quilts in one.
I wish it was that easy.
The quilts shown below that were APQ Quilt-Along features were the inspiration.
I drew out the Holiday Party using some of the math from my Burgoyne Surrounded shown below and added in leftover pieces from my four patch quilt to get some what of a morphed holiday version. Once I connected the dots and added a few more squares to fill in the holes, the Holiday Party quilt came to life.
Now I have the jingle from the 80’s commercial stuck in my head. Double Fresh, Double Smooth, Double Pleasure waiting for you……..

This design is just as yummy in classic blues and tans as shown in the color option featuring Windham fabrics.

Beautiful! Congratulations on the magazine! I love everything about this quilt, especially the colors. It is Christmassy, but doesn’t scream Christmas.
I absolutely love it!!!!
