Scandi Star Christmas quilt

Hello there - I'm happy to share that the Christmas quilt is coming along very nicely - and here's the photo to prove it -

and here is the complete top -

As each block is 16 1/2" this quilt only needed 12 blocks! and so the quilt can be cut and pieced in a day -add another day or a couple of evenings and this quilt will be complete - there is still time before Christmas!!
I used 12 different fabrics from Scandi Christmas fabrics and needed 40cms of each, and there is some left to create a pieced binding.
Cut the following pieces from each fabric using
 1 x 8" square die, , and the Big Shot Pro ,

With the Big Shot and die 657520 - 8 x half square triangles - ,

 4 quarter square triangles ,

and 4 squares - .

Mix and match the fabrics - I used dark reds with light greys, light reds with dark greys - so that each square is different.
The piecing instructions are on my blog for 13th November.
When the 12 blocks are completed, and pressed, lay them out in 4 rows of 3 blocks each. 
Join the blocks together to complete the 4 rows and then join the rows together.
I will probably machine quilt for speed and then make a pieced binding to complete - I hope to have it ready to show you completed next week - and maybe some little girls snuggled up under it.
 Well that will be another first for me - a Christmas quilt - hope you like it.
