I do love Wendy's designs, and I really enjoyed using the wool felt again in this quilt. I decided to make my quilt bright and summery, because Christmas is in summer time in New Zealand.
Here's some close ups of the flowers on the tree.
When it came to the wonky star border I knew I wanted to go bright, so I chose a selection of bright prints from my stash.
Here's some close ups of the hand quilting. I used Aurifil 12wt for the stars on the background fabric because I love how soft and silky it is. I always use a hoop when I'm hand quilting.
If you're looking for this pattern you can buy it from Material Obsession in Sydney, Australia here, or you can find it in QuiltMania's Simply Moderne magazine, issue 3. However, if you're going to to use QuiltMania's pattern, please be aware that there's a mistake with their triangle template. It says the seam allowances are included in the template, but they are not. You can read more about the impact of that error here on Elizabeth's blog.
In fact I strongly recommend you read through all the relevant posts on Elizabeth's blog, because she ran a quilt a long for this quilt during 2016, and provided a huge amount of background information.
The finished size of this quilt is 55" x 62", and I will use it as a wall hanging at Christmas time.
