One of my quilting goals is to make a Christmas quilt every year.
Here is the quilt from 2 years ago.
I designed the quilt using a panel of vintage Santa fabric and then did a lot of hand quilting.
Last year I hand quilted an antique top that I had in the collection.
I have an applique project that I started a while back (partridge in a pear tree). I started the applique and then set it aside for some other projects. I was sure that I would have plenty of time to finish it by Christmas. I realized that it is already October! and I am so involved in other quilts that I don’t think that is going to happen.
A few days ago I came across a listing on eBay that is the solution. The listing was for a quilt top
and a Christmas table-cloth (50’s?)
I went all out and spent $12.95 on the lot.
I plan to quilt the Christmas table-cloth. I will add a border of some kind to make it bed sized. I think it will make a pretty neat quilt, and it wont take very long to finish.
I have been so involved in quilting the whole cloth tree of life quilt that my others have been neglected. Here is how it looks today
