Be Merry….Ok, I think I will.

Just finished (except for binding- sorry I just couldn’t wait to show you this quilt) is this darling and I DO mean darling quilt we made using the “Be Merry” line from Riley Blake.  To say that I LOVE it would be an understatement!  Seriously, this fabric is just so unique and cute and fun….we did add a few other lines to round out the effect and I am quite pleased with it!  We got the free pattern here.  The cool thing about this pattern is that the trees are 3-D.  The quilting was a little tricky, but it was no match for Natalie!  (she handled it perfectly)  Quilting it in an all over mitten design!
