Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Christmas Quilt

So I'm a bit behind, no big surprise there.  I bought some clearance 12 Days of Christmas fabric, by Kate Spain, last year and now my mind is racing with ideas.  It may not be July, but it's gonna start looking like Christmas here for me!
Here are the fabrics I have....

I am thinking of using the red, green and cream fabrics to make a zig zag quilt with a lot of white around it.  Much like the image below, but with only 3 large zig zags in the middle and white above and below them.  More similar to the 2nd image....

I think I will use the blue for the binding?  Not sure, but it isn't the same print, so it's a sad outsider.  Not sure what I am going to do for the back yet.  I think I will end up zig zag quilting it, so I want something that is the same angle.  I may do a few large sporadically placed diamonds of each color and mostly white on the back.

So what are your thoughts, opinions?  Got any great examples to share with me?  Would you do a solid binding of the red to add more christmas feel to it?  Or sporadic stars on the back?  I want it to be simple, but really stand out.
