A Kid's Christmas

Another finish for the holidays! Calling this one A Kid's Christmas, it turned out pretty cute!



The design is a D9P , with every other block turned. This makes two circles, and two X's, while the added sashing separates the greens, and makes the quilt larger.  The traditional D9P layout looked terrible because all three fabrics are the same scale, and there was just no differentiation between the colors. That design got tossed out so quick, I didn't even consider taking a picture!

With more red square fabric than green or white, and wanting a rectangular quilt, the simple border was added to the top and bottom, further increasing the size. Now it's a perfect quilt for a toddler or young child.

 The back was a tough one on this, as I've made a substantial dent in the red/green Christmas yardage in the stash. But hunting through the green bin yielded a piece that works as a backdrop to the strip of remaining scraps sewn down the center.

It may be a bit dull, but it works.
