Christmas season is upon us…

Once again, the Christmas Season has snuck upon me. I must

be getting older because I say that it comes around faster every year.

Although this wallhanging is not Christmasy, it is red and hopefully,

will put you in the Christmas Spirit.

Dale brought me this wallhanging.

Dale’s wallhanging

“Do what you want” were her

exact words. That sounds like a whole lot of fun to me.

I had visions of swirls, instead of sugar plums, dancing in

my head.

My sugar plums

The Poppies were SID with a smoky monofilament thread. It

really blends well with dark backgrounds and you don’t have

to constantly change thread colors, although I didn’t have to

do that here.

I love the poppies in this wallhanging. I used a black

Glide thread for the black background because I wanted

to give it some extra sheen.

Border area

In the border, I quilted in straight lines. I didn’t want a fancy

border to take away from the poppies so I kept it fairly simple.

I used a red polyester thread for the border area.

How can you not love these poppies? It is  a gift

for a special military man.

The backing

The backing shows up the quilting nicely. Black was the

color of the backing but it looks silver here.

Here again, the backing does not look black.  The Poppies

stand out alot here. I sometimes love the back of a quilt

as much as the front. It tells the same story but just in

a different color.

Hope you have a great week and don’t stress too much

about Christmas and all that has to be done. By the time

Christmas Day gets here, you will have it all done.
