This Christmas is Kevin and my very first Christmas as a married couple. So, I have been working very hard to make and find adorable Christmas decorations that will last us throughout our lifetime. When I saw this bundle of fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas quilt with it. 
I was SO EXCITED when I received my fabric in the mail. The Fat Quarter Shop packages and sends their fabric so neat and clean. It looks PERFECT when you pull it out of the box. Aren’t they beautiful?

I used my EQ7 software to create a pattern for my beautiful Christmas fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop. Here is my electronic sketch: 
I chose the pinwheel type of block. I think that they look alot like peppermint candies — which always reminds me of Christmas time! 
First, I unfolded each fat quarter. Then, I ironed out the wrinkles. The fabrics in this collection are such a high quality! They are soft and beautiful. 

After ironing out all of the fabrics, I began using my rotary cutter to make all of my pieces. I went ahead and made all of the cuts for the entire quilt. I LOVED that there was more than enough fabric to create this entire quilt. The only additional fabric that I had to purchase was the extra white fabric, the pink, and the binding. 
I absolutely LOVE how the quilt turned out! This fabric is absolutely GORGEOUS. 

This quilt is a small lap sized quilt — perfect for leaving on the back of the couch and using to snuggle up with on cold winter nights. 

I cannot wait to purchase and quilt with more bundles from the Fat Quarter Shop. The choices are phenomenal and the quality is superb. Kevin and I will be using our “Joy” Christmas Lap Quilt for years to come. So, head on over to the Fat Quarter Shop and browse through their fabric bundles. If you are a fabric fanatic like me — you will be amazed at the beautiful fabrics.
