Christmas Quilt Update

Well, I am going to put my two cents in....I am the youngest that made the Christmas quilt that mom posted yesterday. I just wanted to give credit to the pattern maker if anyone is interested in a quick nine patch that works up in a jiffy (so long as I am not sewing it.) My Christmas quilt was made using the 'Sweet Menagerie' Nine Patch pattern by Roslyn Mirrington on the Moda bakeshop. It uses 2 jellyrolls and 1/2 yard of coordinating fabric for the inner border. Here is the picture of their quilt....
I really liked their quilt and wanted to give it a go(wish I had their fabric too...beautiful...). I just happened to have "The Caroler" jellyroll by Mary Engelbriet made for Moda and about 1 1/2 yards of white fabric instead of two jellyrolls. So The picture in mom's post yesterday was the resulting creation. We added a few more borders to make it fit a queen, but I am pleased with it. It was a fun quilt to make. Then of course off to mom's it was shipped for quilting...mother's aren't they great.
