Being in Australia, it is summer at Christmas time so quilts are not often used, but we do have "Christmas in July" so a themed quilt is perfect for our winter.
I chose one of my favourite fabric ranges to use - Blitzen by Basic Grey as I loved the minty greens with the contrasting deep red and soft browns.
The quilt features a holly and berries border along with some cute picket fences inbetween the houses.
The pattern was easy to follow and fairly straightforward to sew as it is mainly chain pieced.And I had fun selecting prints for the various "decorations" in the houses along the lane.
The decorations in the houses include baubles, trees, wreaths, gifts and peppermint candies, with a strips of lights across each one.
I used the Serpentine stitch again to quilt along the horizontal seams about every 2 inches so it is still lovely and soft.
The backing was pieced using one of the leftover tree blocks and the Britten Nummer fabric from Ikea.
And my little quilt inspector even went for a stroll along the Christmas Lane...:)
