I just had to share it!
Yesterday I picked up my Christmas quilt from the LA and it's simply gorgeous! Bernerdett did a super job on the quilting but the irony is I can't show it to you because I couldn't capture it on camera, pooh! Here's the full quilt on the bed:
I think you can see the quilting in this shot - she quilted holly along the border!
The picture is so fuzzy and the red is all wrong! I need to learn how to use my camera better :o(
This is one of my favorite blocks:
this is also the one that aggravated me! I had taken the quilt to Bern's house and we noticed this block wasn't stitched down! For some reason I just couldn't use her sewing machine, I'm so used to my Singer; I took the quilt back home, stitched the applique down, and returned it the next day.
My friend Pat found this 108" fabric that I used on the back:
It's pretty fabric, and I went for it because I wasn't in the mood to piece a back after all the work on the front! It looks nice and Christmassy on the quilt with it's candy canes, Christmas trees, ornaments, gloves, mittens, snowflakes and little houses.
So that's a wrap, I have my custom made, one-of-a-kind Christmas quilt! If I were to tell you how to make it, I'd probably give you measurements for each section and tell you to fill it with blocks that fit - it's that kind of a quilt!
That's it for now; I didn't get any sewing done at all yesterday, was busy with other stuff. Take care, have a great Thursday, sew forth and sew on!
