December Finish: Dwell Quilt

One of my 2016  sewing goals was to use my stash and improve my quilting skills. I also wanted to make a Christmas quilt that we could use to snuggle under when we binge on Hallmark movies.  Since I saw it popping it up on IG quilting feeds I have admired the Dwell quilt in Camille Roskelley's book, "Sew Retro."

For this quilt, I used up about 80% of my holiday fabric (I still have some in non-traditional colour ways) on this quilt.
Thank you to sewing pals for holding up your quilt in front of the Court House!

The binding is a diagonal red stripe (Sedef''s Sweet Orchard collection at Down the Grapevine Lane). Fabric Spark opened a store front close to my home and I was happy to find this print as I had my heart set on a striped binding.

The long-arm quilting in a snowflake pattern was done by Michelle at Quilted Memories. I chose to back the quilt in a grey flannel.

I am so happy with the way it turned out (even though there are a few imperfections here and there) and even happier that I was able to use my stash and accomplish a goal!
