My Christmas Aunt Intro

Sometime ago I designed a quilt for someone else, kept the project file and eventually went back to it and changed the setting a bit, and created a new series of designs. The layout was prepared as a custom quilt, so I saved the original file under a new name to keep the new designs separate. I don’t think any of the original blocks are in any of the new designs.

The basic layout is shown above, and each of those coloured spaces can be replaced with any block which is in the Electric Quilt libraries and any original block which I have drawn up and saved in my personal block library. Then you can add a border or two or more.

So, what does the layout look like with block designs replacing those large pieces of fabric?

Just a note, those fine lines could be appliquéd bias strips or drawn onto the background fabric with pens.

The name of the series came about because the person who wanted me to draw the original medallion layout shares a name with one of my aunts ………. the Christmas was added because the colours are very similar to the Christmas quilt for our bed, and the Peaced for Christmas series I introduced a couple of days ago.

I often show two designs when I introduce a new series, and this time is no exception ………. especially as I have promised two quilt designs a day until Christmas Day.  So here is another one ………………
