Christmas Quilt Tops

I finished two quilt tops the weekend before Christmas, and I’m happy to report that I like how they turned out.

For the quilt above, I used two charm packs of 5 inch squares from the Figgy Pudding collection for the center, and added three borders to make it big enough for an adult to snuggle under. I’m going to use a fabric for the backing that is in the lower left corner and probably green for the binding.

For this second quilt, I did the same, with two charm packs of 5 inch squares from the Crazy Eight collection. Since I ordered these charm squares a couple months ago and now this fabric was impossible to find, I’m not sure what to use for the backing and binding.

Oh yeah, I finished my mini quilts too!

I think the backs look almost as fun as the fronts.

If I hadn’t had anything else to do these past couple weeks, I may have been able to finish quilting these new quilt tops, but since I was super busy at my day job, and the Christmas holiday was just upon us, I will add these to my (small) pile of UFOs for a 2010 resolution. I only had three unfinished quilt tops before these, so I’m hoping to finish all of them in January.
