Okay, it is officially December and all the Thanksgiving excitement is over. Time to talk Christmas.
It takes quite a while to build up a good collection of Christmas decor. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all go out and buy everything all at once? Instead, we add little by little each year.
I recently introduced you to the ladies at JennyM’s Quilt Company. I loved the table runner they made me so much that I worked with them to create a custom Christmas quilt for our family.
I have been wanting a Christmas quilt or blanket to our collection, but hadn’t really seen too many that I liked the style of in stores. I’m not a fan of traditional red, green, and gold Christmas colors. I like light and bright and if it has some turquoise or aqua in it, even better.
I did a search for Christmas fabrics and found some adorable bright, modern Christmas fabrics by Kate Spain that we worked with for our quilt. I love it so much that I just had to share some pictures of the Christmas Quilt with you.
Here is a closer look at the fabrics. Aren’t they so cute?
How about a little closer? Can you see the quilting pattern that the quilt was put together with? It is hard to show it in the photo, but it is a snowflake design. Perfect for this time of year! The back is a solid piece of the aqua fabric with the green and red Christmas trees.
When the blanket isn’t in use, I have it folded and draped over a brown leather chair that sits in a cozy spot next to the fireplace and Christmas tree. But, it is often in use. The kids love to cuddle with it on the couch when they are watching a movie and it is big enough for a few people to use at a time.
This will definitely quickly become a well-loved Christmas piece to pull out this time of year and will last for years to come.
Stay tuned for a glimpse of the rest of our Christmas decor!
Do you have a special Christmas blanket that you cuddle up with on the couch?
