Pickety Sticks Christmas Quilt

I finally finished my Christmas Quilt. I started it 3 years ago. It's not because it was a difficult pattern. In fact the pattern is EASY PEASY! It just kept getting bounced to the bottom of the list.


I pretty much bought 1/4 yard cuts here and there in the colors I wanted to use.
Pickety Sticks Quilt

I used Heather Mulder Peterson's pattern; Pickety Sticks. The pattern is in her book titled; On A Roll Again. I've made more then one quilt with this pattern. It's fun to do.


If it wasn't so nasty wet and cold outside, I'd leave it out on the front porch. It looks so cute out there. But instead it is now draped over the back of the sofa in the living room and looks fabulous there too.

Happy Holidays!

Amazing! I'm so inspired right now! Add me to the list of people who will probably take years to finish their Christmas quilt...

Becky said...

That's adorable. Perfect for the holidays!

Love your new Christmas quilt! Think I need to start one now - maybe it will be done by the time we retire! Seriously, I've set a goal to give my kids quilts next year for Christmas. Think I'll keep them simple and start shortly after the New Year. You are such an inspiration!

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Swoon! I am in love with that quilt! It is SO sweet! Enjoy it!

p.s. I started a Halloween quilt that keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the list! I love it so I can only guess it is because it's for us and has no deadline!

It looks perfect next to those white skates!

Becky said...

Love, love, love it!

I want to make one but I guarantee it'll take me more than 3 years. I'm still "working" on T-shirt quilts for my kids' High School graduations in 02 and 05! Sad isn't it?

Love this so much! I have some Christmas-y fabrics for a Christmas quilt, but just haven't done it yet. I keep seeing all sorts of great ideas! This would be one of them...

This is a nice season quilt - not too Chrismassy. I love paisleys, so this just touches me. This would be something you could keep out all winter for a pick-me up.

Diane said...

Pretty! I was looking for something to use the strips lift from my Christmas string quilt and maybe I will do something like this! Thanks for the inspiration!

Lisa said...

This is gorgeous... festive, but not too brightly colored. I've been puttering around with a Christmas quilt too... it seems like a good after-holidays project for next year.

Renee•Candy Stick Lane said...

Stunning!!! Great pics to!

Thimbleanna said...

Adorable quilt Jody! I have a table runner out of some of those fabrics and I love it!

Teresa said...

I love this quilt! I've only made (finished) two quilts, and I would love to take on a Christmas quilt next. Your fabrics are beautiful.
