Bloggers Quilt Festival a Scrappy Christmas

I love the Bloggers Quilt Festival! Such a fun thing that Amy does. (Thank You!) 
I have participated each time (except this spring when life got really busy). 
I always like to share a newly finished quilt. This time the festival was all the motivation I needed to get this quilt finished. I joined a christmas block swap back in the summer of 2009. I put all the swap blocks together with a few extra of mine a year ago. And I quilted and did the binding the last two nights, just in the nick of time to join the festival. phew! So this quilt was 3 years in the making. And its HUGE; 70 X 95. 
Some of you might even recognize your Christmas blocks. (if you exchanged with me).  Thanks! I love this quilt. And so does my husband who prefers quilts that can cover his shoulders and toes. 
I got my inspiration of how to quilt this quilt when one of my friends "pinned" this quilt. 
Diagonal lines mixed with some horizontal lines. 
Perfect for a log cabin quilt. 
This quilted up pretty fast, with all those lines. 
I backed the quilt with a Christmas minky fabric, so it will be extra warm for those Cold December days. 
And I binded with some Mary Engelbreit Christmas fabric from a few years ago. 
Thanks for stopping by.
