My September 2021 One Monthly Goal is to make a throw-size Christmas North Stars quilt for my sister-in-law, Sharon. Last year I made a North Stars Quilt to include in my Christmas decorating that has a white polar bear, two otters, a walrus, and a seal. When I showed Sharon the pattern and told her she could pick four of the blocks, she chose the muskox, the foxes, the reindeer, and the bear but requested it be a brown bear instead. We decided to use a muted Christmas palette of some dark and olive green, red with a tinge of brown, cream/brown, gold, and taupe/grey. I ordered some fabrics from Tim Holtz’ Christmastime collection that captured that palette perfectly, supplemented with several Essex Linen fabrics, and some fabrics from my stash. Below is a pic of the the pattern and the fabrics I pulled but of course after I took the photo, I added a couple other fabrics!
