I had some of Laurie Wisbrun‘s Brrr! fabrics left over after making my Converging Corners quilt, so I decided to use the prints from the red & green colorway to make up a Christmassy quilt. It’s a bit strange to be making a wintery quilt just as we’re moving into Spring, but I can’t help thinking how excited I’ll be to be able to pull out this quilt next winter (I often think about making a Christmassy quilt, but usually wait too long, as in the case of my Ruby Strings quilt!).
This quilt is a repeat of my Timber quilt, which I made long ago during a quiltalong hosted by Randi. I switched up the design a little bit when I made that original quilt, increasing the size of the blocks, adding in the skinny white strips and adjusting the positioning of the blocks a bit. I wasn’t sure of the measurements I used for the Timber quilt, so I guessed at these, and I think they’ve ended up a bit larger than the original, but no matter. I love how this quilt shows off large blocks of your prints, is quick to make, yet still has visual interest.
I am a notorious procrastinator, but perhaps I’m changing my ways! (now let’s just see if I can get this one quilted before Christmas arrives!)
Prints used in this quilt are part of Laurie Wisbrun's new line, Brrr!, for Robert Kaufman Fabrics and due in stores in June.
