This is a quilt I made years ago using the paper piecing method. I remember that a website called Paper Panache offered a free pattern for the quilt which I promptly printed off. I didn't really have any idea how to paper piece, but quickly worked it out and enjoyed seeing the little blocks come together. While I love the nine centre blocks, my favourite part of the quilt is the border of Christmas lights that surround the nine blocks. I didn't buy any fabric for this quilt (no funds!), but used only what I had on hand at the time. I think this is why the quilt features blue quite prominently!
The wreath and the Christmas tree are embellished with Christmas buttons. The backing is a textured fabric that I remember was a real pain to sew with!
