Counting On Christmas

Occasionally I have an idea for a quilt that lingers in my head for quite sometime. Then, in an amazing turn of events, everything falls into place and it becomes reality. "Counting on Christma" is one such quilt. As I was packing for market I tossed my inspiration sketch into my carry-on. I kept thinking about this quilt all the way to Minneapolis. And then I met the wonderfully talented Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup and a friendship was born! The moment I laid eyes on her new Christmas line I knew it had to be- she even sold me the "Sample Spree" fabric EARLY so that I could be sure to get some as it was in limited supply! And so I present:


I know I keep saying this about ALL of my new patterns but I LOVE this one. Really, I do. What is most exciting and fun is that this pattern comes with instructions for 3 different quilt sizes. The wallhanging, a throw size (my favorite size quilt) and TWIN size! Seriously. Wouldn't this be the cutest quilt on a childs bed at Christmastime!?

What a beautiful quilt. Such non-traditional colors. I can definitely see it in moss green and barn red (two of my personal favorites) :)!
