Christmas Present Quilt

I have spent the last week making this cool 'modern' Christmas wallhanging.
It measures 32" wide by 60" long.

This Moda fabric range is called "Countdown to Christmas" and is designed by Sweetwater.
We will be finishing off making up the kitsets for this quilt on Monday

I outline quilted the presents and did straight lines in the sashings and borders. 
I used the width of my walking foot - half an inch - which made it easy to keep the lines parallel.Luckily the sashing and the borders were easily divisible by half an inch.

The binding is a red and white stripe.

I do love striped quilt bindings.

The back is a creamy plain which shows up the quilting and binding nicely too.
