I Wish You A Merry QAL

Block #12, by Laura Piland was so much fun.
Of course, my string of lights came out  a bit twisted, with the lights on the inside instead of the outside of the string. I also had to make the bulbs a bit smaller so they could fit.
I needed a red background to add balance to my quilt, but the red sort of interferes with the red bulbs.

I also figured out how to make a stocking quilt block.

So, now I have to figure out which blocks will be included in the quilt and which ones become a pillow cover.
I thought that maybe the string of lights could be one of the blocks I piece on the back.
So far, 2 out of 3 family members chose the quilt with the lantern.
What do you think?
I appreciate your input.

  1. I also prefer Quilt #2! Have you considered making Christmas bunting with your extra quilted blocks? I made two short ones with flannel fabric squares that are window-width and are attached to green and white checked bias tape.
