Finished quilting my Christmas scrap quilt!

Finished quilting my Christmas scrap quilt!

Having finally got all the borders pieced and added, I loaded the quilt top on the long arm frame and got quilting.  Somehow, I felt I needed the quilting to reflect the theme and so meandered stars and holly leaves over most of it with a couple of places where I did some custom quilting to highlight part of the blocks.  It was tricky choosing a thread given the strong red and green so I decided to stay neutral with a variegated thread that blended in with the multitude of scrap creams, whites and golds.  I added the binding to the top while it was still on the frame and will now trim it and hand stitch the binding when I have a moment. And then it can go away till Christmas!
