Peppermint Christmas

Okay, so the pattern that I found was from Red Rooster Fabrics and it’s called “Peppermint Christmas”, here’s the link: http://www.redroosterfabrics.com/content5743.html

The directions weren’t as clear as I would have liked and I obviously used different quilting material, but I’m not unhappy with how it turned out.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE the rotary cutter? These are the pieces for the star block that is the center of the quilt.  I changed my mind so many times while trying to figure out which fabric would be used for which shapes.  In the end, I completely went off the reservation for everything except the star block.  Below is how it’s supposed to look:

Instead my star block ended up looking like this:

I started cutting the pieces at 9am and finished the quilt at 5pm.  When I say I finished the quilt, I mean the facing and backing is done and the batting has been cut to size.  We had purchased a lot of “Warm and Natural” cotton batting from Joanns for a steal on black Friday.  I should also mention that I really increased my skill at seam ripping.  I started off sewing the wrong direction and was hoping it wasn’t a harbinger of things to come with this quilt.  Honestly, I should have been able to finish it a lot sooner than I did.

Here is the finished quilt front and back, I’m currently going over ideas of the quilt pattern I will use.  Any ideas?
