Grinch Christmas Quilt - Quilt Festival

I am so happy to be able to post this quilt in the Fall 2012 Blogger's Quilt Festival. Thanks to Amy for all of her hard work putting this together!


The quilt I am showing today is my Grinch Christmas Quilt. I loved putting this together and creating my first wonky blocks. I loved the improv part of this quilt, even though I did have a system set up at the outset with the checkerboard layout.

I have three boys, who have always loved the Grinch Christmas special as much as I did as a kid. OK, let's face it - I still love the Grinch!

My favorite characters are of course Max and Cindy Lou Who.

I had this quilted by Kathy of Stitch by Stitch. She did an awesome job, and I love the curvy pattern which reminds me of the Grinch's eyes.

Finished quilt measures : 60″x 60″
Special techniques used : improv
Best Category : Throw Quilt, Professionally Quilted

I am so excited to be able to look at all of the inspiring work that will be entered into the Festival! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'd love to hear what you have to say.
