Merry Christmas!

I am hoping that you will have a Merry Christmas!  Here are some

of the projects I was trying to finish up last week. The fabric

postcard above, was sent to me from Mary. Didn’t she do a great

job?  I love getting these in the mail.  I was surprised that the

buttons didn’t break or get hooked in the mail sorting machines.

This cute quilt was made by Anna, for her grand daughter.

There were 20 blocks in each quilt and they were all hand

embroidered.  Anna is very talented when it comes to hand

embroidery.

Who can resist these cute animals?

The sunfish looks kind of tired though.

I used a purple and white polyester thread. In the blocks,

I stitched around all the  embroidery and the block. I thought

that the space needed some extra stitching, to hold the block

down, so I quilted in some swirls. When the whole quilt is laid out,

it looks like  flowers.  In the sashing, I stitched leaves and added

more swirls to finish off the flower.

Here is what the backing looks like. The purple fabric

blends well with the top of the quilt and the stitching

stands out really well too.

Here is the second quilt that Anna made. She was one

busy lady this past year. I love the green fabric too.

In the  sashing, I quilted a wavy line.  I wanted to quilt

this one a little different from the first one.  These 2 quilts

were going to sisters so I wanted them to be slightly different

from one another.

I also used a white and green polyester thread and again

stitched around the embroidery and the outside of the block.

This time, I quilted hearts in the corners of the white blocks.

The backing is a solid  green color and the stitching shows

beautifully as well.

Again, from our house to yours, have a Merry Christmas!
