Poinsettia Pinwheels for Fat Quarterly Xmas Issue Vol. 10

I have the honor of having contributed to the 19th Issue of Fat Quarterly - Christmas. My design uses solid fabrics and lots of half square triangles to create a fun, modern, and very geometric Xmas quilt.  



I quilted each color area of the quilt using matching colored thread and different designs. You can't really see the quilting in the picture above so here is a closeup of the back of the quilt. There were a lot of threads to bury :)




You can check out a preview of the magazine here to see all of the other Christmas quilty goodness.

  11. Colors are very pleasing....not strong as some of the Christmas quilts tend to be. Love the quilting with the change of thread colors.
