The days and weeks leading up to Christmas Day is always a busy time. Are you
discovering this phenomena? By the time that Christmas Day finally rolls
around, it is a huge relief to have all the details taken care of. Here are some
details that I have been trying to take care of lately.
Carol is a very generous person and has taken lots of trips to Jamaica, if I remember
correctly, to help out the locals there. In doing so, she raises money by making charity
quilts. This particular quilt is made from scraps that were left over from a previous quilt
that she had made before. Did I mention that she is pretty clever as well?
I used a monfilament thread to stitch around all the blocks. Carol didn’t know what she
wanted in the background section so I decided to stitch in straight lines. As I was stitching,
I noticed that the pattern was really a 2″ wide square. How cool was that? By the time I was
finished, it almost looked like a plaid fabric.
The backing fabric was really interesting; lots of words on it.
I used a cream polyester thread on the back of the quilt. Carol was pleased with
the result and so was I.
Dorothy made this cute little baby quilt. I love it when my customer’s
decide to be creative and make their own designs and quilts.
I tried to mimic all the designs on the quilt itself so I added some waves for the
water and some more grass on the quilt top. I also added another daisy and outlined
Here is the backing. You can really see the pattern on the back of the quilt.
Jeanette made this panel quilt. She added some 9 patch blocks on the top and
the bottom of this panel. She chose an oak and leaf pattern for the stitching.
Here is what the 9 patch looks like. You can really see the stitching in this
block. I used a brown polyester thread for the quilt top and the backing.
I love the green flannel on the back of the quilt.
Here is a close up of the back of the quilt.
I can’t remember who made this quilt but it is definitely for a little girl.
I used a light pink polyester thread for the top and the backing.
The overall design used on the quilt top was called “Rose Vine.”
The border section of the quilt top.
The green fabric is really nice and suits the quilt nicely.
Once again, it is nice to see a close up of the backing fabric and the
stitching. Hope you are taking some time to enjoy this Christmas Season.
