This is the last week in this fun quilt along from Fat Quarter Shop! I’m so excited to show off my All the Trimmings Quilt Top!
This has been such a fun sew along!! The quilt is called All the Trimmings and it is hosted by Fat Quarter Shop!! We are on the last week of the quilt along – this is the week for finishing up the tops! I decided to do mine a little differently. I added three borders!
I added a small red Christmas lights border, an aqua Ornaments border, and a white border (same as my background). I’m so excited about how it turned out! The borders made the top – so that’s a nice size for a small lap quilt! I think I’m going to have it quilted with a cute Christmas Lights design.
For my quilt, I sewed with Christmas Adventure fabric for my prints and Blossom tone on tone for my background. (affiliate links) Up close the background looks a little like snow!
All the Trimmings Quilt Top
I’m so in love with these rows – especially that little ribbon row!
Here are some quick details on my borders:
I used the finishing instructions as they were from Fat Quarter Shop. To that, I added:
- Inner Christmas Lights Border – 2 pieces 2″ x 38 1/2″ for sides, 2 pieces 2″ x 36 1/2″ for top and bottom
- Aqua Ornaments Border – 2 pieces 4″ x 41 1/2″ for sides, 2 pieces 4″ x 43 1/2″ for top and bottom
- Background Outer Border – 2 pieces 3″ x 48 1/2″ for sides, 2 pieces 3″ x 48 1/2 for top and bottom
So my finished quilt top is 48 1/2″ x 51 1/2″. After quilting, I’ll trim it down to 48″ x 51″. Yay!!

Would love to make a picnic blanket with this fabric.
I think I’d make a quilt that can be used all year round like for picnics in the summer etc it’s just to scrumptious to keep just for Christmas
