finished christmas quilt

i finished up the christmas quilt for my mom this morning, while the lidkids had a lazy day playing around the house. i had chose a different fabric for the backing than i had originally posted. and i decided on solid brown for the binding, because the top was already so busy. i had hoped to machine quilt the binding on, but after several failed attempts last night, i resigned myself to hand sewing it this morning.

i still have to cut all the little loose strands of thread and give it a run through the laundry, but i’m too impatient to save this post until then…

the top.
