A Quilty Christmas

My sister got a quilt this year for Christmas. It started out as silent auction prize for her fundraiser. But when the silent auction didn't happen (and I had already bought the fabric) I decided to make this her Christmas present.

It looks more complicated than it really is. It's actually a super easy layer cake pattern.

I quilted it myself on the diagonal about every 3 inches in a cream thread. I'm happy with how it turned out. :)

I made the tag on Spoonflower before the auction was cancelled. But I figured it could still go on the quilt since there's no auction-related details on it. I found the little heart tags at my local quilt shop and thought they were too cute. They say "P.S. I love you"

All in all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. And she likes it too, so that's all that matters. :)
