Finished Blitzen Basketcase Quilt

It only took three years. but this quilt is finally finished! You can check out finish #1 and finish #2 from this week too!

Click here for all of the posts on this project! This is my first and only Christmas quilt!

This quilt has been three years in the making and I finished the top over a year ago! This is the problem when your preferred long arm quilter is in Michigan!

The border has a leafy vine and the blocks have a scroll work pattern in each block! I am so happy with how this one turned out!

The border is one of the larger scale prints from the line and the backing is one of the green smaller scale prints.

I also used the backing fabric for the binding -- it gives a great green pop around the outside of the red border!

The fabric is Blitzen by Basic Grey and the pattern is Basketcase by Cluck, Cluck, Sew!

Lovely quilting!
