Aren’t you in heaven when it comes to holiday fabric? Fabric companies like Cotton + Steel, Riley Blake, and many others turn out holiday collections each year that wow! Last Christmas I made my son William a Christmas quilt for his bed, and I was determined to make him something that felt really festive, yet, something that could grow with him. When I saw Cotton + Steel’s Noel Christmas collection I was sold! The navy blues along with the red, turquoise, gold, and green was something I loved for a boy. Yet, this collection had a fun, festive, and playful vibe that includes snow animals, presents, and tiny candy canes wrapped in bows set against a navy blue backdrop how adorable!
Cotton + Steel Noel
I found a pattern that I believed would pair perfectly with Cotton + Steel’s Noel line. Tagged out of Growing Up Modern by Alison Harris was the pattern I used for William’s quilt project. This quilt comes in three different sizes baby, crib, and twin, perfect for your next baby shower gift, or perhaps a childs’ birthday quilt.
I used some additional Cotton + Steel basics, a kelly green for the border of each block. Along with a red and white fabric for the background of William’s quilt.
I took the kids up to Park City to get a few pics of William’s new quilt, it was a sunny, but chilly day. The kids tried to sled, unfortunately we had a very light year in terms of snow last year, yet, as kids will do they made the most of it.
For the back of William’s quilt I decided on a blue gingham flannel by Riley Blake. There’s something about backing a quilt in flannel, the additional weight of the flannel feels so nice on a cold winter night, in addition to the added warmth it provides.
I’m so happy with how William’s quilt turned out, I love the pattern and fabric selection. Every night when William and I lay down for our nightly reading session we both get to enjoy this lovely Christmas quilt. A quilt that I believe will stand the test of time, and will be snuggled and loved with each Christmas to come.
