Back to quilting

I had fun with snowflakes and tree decorating, but I had to get back to quilting!  The current project continues to develop.  I will be working on it for quite some time yet, but It is good to spread it out and take a look once in a while…

When I started I was having trouble with the batik backing fabric but I got used to it and it is no problem.

Here are some pictures.  It is not easy to get a clear picture of the quilting on the back but you can get the idea. (click to enlarge)

And here is the Santa Tree

      thanks Karen….I bought the backing fabric just because I really liked it…I didnt know what I was going to do with it….but I am glad I decided to use it on this

    What a gorgeous quilt, your work is inspiring. I too am a hand quilter but definitely not in your category, so glad I discovered your blog.

    What gorgeous quilting on your quilt. I love those feathers!

    Great santa tree. Where did you find such wonderful santas? Those are quite neat.

      Thanks Sue

      most of the Santas were gifts over the years….the collection continues to grow and I have not bought one myself in years…they are all the more special when they are gifts
