Christmas Show 2011!

It’s time for SewCalGal’s 2011 Christmas Show!  (I'm almost late)


My entry was made from a pattern by Kindred Spirits, called "Let It Snow...Let It Snow."   It’s probably my favorite Christmas/Winter quilt—the colors just make me happy.  It's machine appliquéd and handquilted in red.


The pattern is quite old so I doubt it's still available (I couldn't find it online), but there were a couple on Ebay a few minutes ago if you're interested.    Unfortunately, it’s beginning to show its age as a few of the fabrics are fading with time, especially the black and white stripe.  I'm thinking of adding a pretty ribbon or a bias strip to cover it up--one of these years...just have to figure out the right one!


Be sure to enjoy all the lovely quilts in the show.  And be sure to enjoy the holiday season—and find lots of time to curl up and sew! :)
