When I first saw Cindy's BOM I thought 'how cute'!! But I admit that I am not a lover of seasonal fabric, especially Christmas fabrics. I had just been doing some re-organizing and came across a blue FQ bundle and odds/ends that I had bagged for some kind of play. Well, it was fate - right? And thus, I was making a winter quilt - not a Christmas quilt (I said to self).
The entire quilt was 'mapped' for using 2.5" squares (love to play with those), but I had to remember I had some FQs and scraps and needed to really try to use them to their fullest without running out. The first row was the cute snowmen.
Cindy gave us wonderful directions/tutorials each month. As you can see from her diagram this was a row quilt, but we got things mixed so you had to wait and see what came next.
All my rows were coming out so nicely when putting things together, but these cute lights. I went back to the original post - duh, I had added a row inbetween each 'socket end' units. A little session with 'ribbet' and things were fine.
I loved how everyone made this into their own, though using the same pattern. Different fabrics, colors, layouts, embellishments, and finishing. I have yet to embellish mine - it will be a Christmas in July project this year - then it can be quilted for the new 2015 winter season quilt. I used up all the left over fabrics in the final border. A few small pieces went into my fabric food chain system.

Thank you for visiting,
It's a wonderful winter quilt! Don't tempt me with another great project!!
Your quilt looks great, Sharon.
Love your version, too. I like that almost every row has a different background fabric. It all looks great together.
Sharon, your quilt is wonderful! I think my favorite row is the cups...I can smell the hot chocolate from here!
Fun quilt! I love all the blues you used.
Your version is just wonderful! You did a great job creating your theme with the blues for this one. It is so great to finally see all your blocks come together.
Just beautiful, Sharon. I love your blue scraps and how you put some back into the "food chain system".
I love your version of this quilt , such a fun row quilt !
That is just so cute.
A wonderful, cheery winter quilt! Great job!
That is really beautiful and definitely a winter quilt, not Christmas.
I made the lights row wrong too, but left it! It was the right overall length, and so....
good job on the finish!
Leeanna at not afraid of color
Love the way you worked with all the different backgrounds!
I love how your has turned out. The blues are so pretty.
Very cute! Love the lights. I love watching how all the different quilts emerge when everyone has used the same pattern! Thanks for letting us know about the new QAL; I'm off to see what it's all about!
I love how yours turned out--it's darling! I had some problems with counting the squares too. And I love it when so many scraps get used up too! Nice work!
Love the border on your quilt and how it turned out! So glad you joined me over the last year as we made this quilt.
Sharon! Another beautiful finish, love it!
Sharon, It is beautiful.
Good job on your quilt. It's beautiful.
It looks fantastic.
Love all of the different blues! And your final border is great!
Love the skates on the bottom. Looks like your quilt is skating away :) Adorable! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that added rows to the the lights lol
Your quilt is beautiful! I've been enjoying seeing how everyone embellished theirs to make them their own.
Sharon, I just love it. The rich blues really add sparkle to your quilt. It looks like it was a lot of fun. I may have to check out her 2015.
Very pretty-- fun to see the way you made it your own-- my favorites are the white as your background candy color and your red cabin!
