A few months ago, I bought a “Sugar Plum and Friends” layer cake from Handcut Fabric. I really do not need another Christmas quilt, but I just could not pass up Sugar Plum. The mice! The nutcrackers! The peppermints!! I added a bit of fabric from my stash and made it quite a bit bigger than I originally anticipated. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to quilt this, but then my husband’s aunt asked me if I wanted her hand quilting frames!!! Thankfully we have an unfinished basement and a place to store them when not in use, so we said yes! I have used it now on two quilts and I LOVE it! I quilted this in a No 8 Perle cotton in a simple diagonal cross hatch through the “center” of each block. It is backed in an Cotton + Steel brushed twill backing and man, this quilt is going to be SOFT and snuggled and loved forever.
