Christmas Sampler Quilt

This fun Christmas sampler was sent to be my the same lady who sent me the wonky star quilt (see yesterday's blog post).

She wanted a custom quilt job, but she didn't want tight quilting either. To achieve this I did a loose figure 8 in the sashing. In each of the blocks I did a Christmas-themed design while keeping the quilting loose.
In the wonky stars blocks I quilted a loose loop in the background and stitched in the ditch around the star. In the outer border I quilted a large holly leaf.
This is the view of the back of the quilt. She pieced a block in the center and appliqued on the recipient's first initial.
