Quilting for Christmas: Part 9

Welcome back to my Quilting for Christmas.  To bring you up to date, I have been working on my “Deck-ade the Halls” quilt, with hopes to have it finished for the holiday season.  (If you are interested in making this project, you can download the pattern here.)

There are 10 sections to this quilt.  The first being the list of supplies, and the last being the finishing instructions.  To date, I have completed the all the blocks.  Today I put them all together!

This is Download #10, which is the finishing pattern.  It is where we put all the blocks together, and add all the borders before quilting.

Here is the finished Deck-ade the Halls top (62-1/2″ x 71-1/2″):

  1. Three Wise Gingerbread Men – 92 pieces
  2. Star-Studded – 88 pieces
  3. Vintage Ornaments – 146 pieces
  4. Santa’s Stockings – 94 pieces
  5. Season of Giving – 36 pieces
  6. Holiday Homecoming – 71 pieces
  7. Trim the Tree – 36 pieces
  8. Cozy Cocoa Cups – 62 pieces
  9. Finishing – 30 pieces
  10. Currently total pieces in this quilt…655 pieces.

All the blocks are now completed. (you can see the full size image by clicking on them)

It’s time for a high-five!  All the blocks are complete & assembled.  All that is left is to quilt it!  Thank you so much for joining me on this journey.  Just knowing that someone was watching my progress, kept me on track.

Until next time, Connie 🙂

  1. What a project! I love quilts and, in fact, have a wedding ring design quilt my great grandmother made which I still use to this day (though it could use some expert care.) Do you sell any of your quilts?

      1. Hmmmm … Perhaps I’ll post an image. I don’t know the stories, sadly. I never met her. But they were pioneering stock and I expect it was made during her time in Montana, which would have been about 75 years ago. I know some of those stories …

      2. I’d like to nominate you for the 3 Day, 3 Quotes challenge…I hope you accept. The challenge is easy – thank the person who invited you; post a quote for 3 days and invite/challenge someone else to join on each day. Check out today’s blog to see…hope you are game! 🙂
