Last year, right after Thanksgiving, I stumbled across this awesome Grinch fabric from Robert Kaufman Fabrics and I just had to grab it. I had no idea what I would use it for, but I loved it too much to pass it by. Once I was home I played around with a few ideas but settled on trying to make up my own quilt pattern. I wanted the fabric to stay the focus; not too busy but not too plain jane either. I finally decided to make simple blocks that were a bit uneven.
And that's where I left it...
With the busyness of the holidays, it just never got finished. So I pulled it back out this year and realized just how close I was. I already had all of the blocks finished. So I was able to just sew them all together and wa-lah, a finished quilt top.
I just added some red minky for the backing and machine quilted it with jingle bells. I love how the green thread looks up against the black background fabric.
And here you can see 3/4ths of my Grinch Quilt. It's not even bound yet and my boys have already slept with it under the Christmas tree. I love when a quilt is that loved.
