The night will be good underneath my warm, newly finished, Christmas quilt.
The pattern and fabric are by Anna Griffin (Christmas Toile).
The fabric is quite busy and I think it is easy to lose sight of the quilt design.
There are wonky stars inside each block.
The thing about those wonky stars is that all four seams come together right in the center.
That can cause a big ‘bump’ in the middle of the star.
Who needs bumpy stars!
My solution to bumpy-centered stars was to clip the seam just to the stitching.
Then I could press the seams in opposite directions to help minimize bulk.
It worked fine, but I just learned a better way to de-bump centers.
I will share that in an upcoming post.
I did the quilting on my Bernina 750.
The back is from the coordinating quilt print by Anna Griffin,
and the binding is a solid red from Riley Blake.
Have a very warm and restful Christmas night, my friends.
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you,
he is Christ the Lord.”

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
