Christmas Quilt

I showed you these blocks already that I had machine embroidered years ago

and I finally got some coordinating Christmas fabrics from connecting threads.

I used my 9” QUBE set and cut out pieces

I trimmed the embroidered blocks and made them 9 1/2” to match the QUBE blocks

Here’s the 9” alternate block

and here’s the middle of the top

and added borders, a striped inner border and the dark print on the outer border- it looks black but it’s not really

and I made the binding strips from the strip as well, don’t you just love a striped binding??
