Christmas Lap Quilt

I kept collecting Christmas fabric in 2011, so I must have wanted a Christmas quilt.  Below is my Christmas lap quilt. The idea came from a picture on the internet.  I promise to update this entry and give credit, when I find it again. 

Christmas Lap Quilt just back from the LAQer. 

It is quilted in Christmas ornaments, in gold colored thread.  The pictures do not do the quilting justice.  Below are close ups of the quilt pattern.  It was quilted by the Celtic Quilter.  She has a LAQ machine that downloads patterns from a website.

The back with binding.

The binding is cut on the straight of grain.  I love this fabric.  We use to have to cut stripes on the bias to get this look.
