Crazy Christmas Quilt

Here is my entry!  I just finished it.  I have always wanted to make a Christmas Quilt, but I usually hang our stockings from my quilt display rack.  All year long I hang different quilts up and we don't have a fireplace mantle for the stockings. 
It is 37"x37".  I used a variety of fabrics from my stash- 3 upholstery fabrics, fake suede, green silk noil, gingham, Asian print cottons and one actual "Christmas" print cotton.  I like using scraps because it gives a quilt an interesting look.

I did some fancy machine stitching in places.  The suede already had stitching on it.  The quilt has a flannel back and could be a table covering, wall hanging, sofa drape etc.  I haven't decided what to do with it yet.  
Thanks for visiting!
