Rudolph Quilt - Finished!

Finished and gifted and FINALLY a post about it. Sheesh. I know. And there's two more Christmas posts to go. I may finish writing about Christmas before next Christmas.

Rudolph is a book panel from Hobby Lobby last year. The Dude is OBSESSED with Rudolph, so I picked it up with the intention of cutting the "pages" into quilt blocks.
Cheapy book panels? Not printed straight, and therefore not easy to square up. I finally got all twelve "pages" to the same size with minimal skewing, and then realized the quarter yard of red Rudolph fabric would in no way be enough for anything more than cornerstones.
I lucked out and found an online seller who had this red for the borders and backing, and white Rudolph for the sashing.
The quilting is three straight lines through each block. I was going to add more lines through the sashing, but it didn't look right. So I picked them out. Fun.
The binding is a candy cane stripe from Hobby Lobby.

Finished size: 45x55"

The Dude loves it, of course. And even better, he didn't puke on it during the whole Christmas car ride!

Check out more finishes at Whoop Whoop Fridays and Finish It Up Friday.
