Finished Quilt on the Design Wall!

My January UFO is finally finished on the very last day of the month! 
Here is my version of Deckade the Halls pinned to the design wall. It measures 56" x 68" which is wider than my design wall, so the edges of the quilt look a little bit wonkier than they really are.
This was a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop to celebrate their 10 years in business in 2013. It was such a fun quilt to piece with the Christmas themed blocks of ornaments, stockings, presents, trees, gingerbread people, mugs, stars and wreaths.




Although I am pleased with how the quilted grid design turned out, I wouldn't recommend it to a quilter who might have any perfectionistic tendencies, as it is very tricky to keep the lines at the same angle across the entire quilt. 







I am linking up my first finish of 2016 over at One Monthly Goal and Design Wall Monday.

  6. Congratulations on the finish. I did diagonal quilting (hand quilting) on my last quilt. I thought I was being so careful to keep the same distance on each line of stitching but by the time I was near the end, I was off by 1/4" to 1/2". You're right, that grid design is tricky trying to keep the same angle across the quilt.

    Again, congrats on a beautiful finish.
