Last Customer Quilt Before Christmas

Whew!  The final customer quilt before Christmas is done!  I had SO much fun working on this quilt.  Barbara chose hot pink thread, and it looks so stunning on this quilt.  I hope the person who receives it as a Christmas gift will be as excited as Barbara and I were when we looked at the finished product.

Close-ups of “Christmas 2012” written at the bottom of the quilt.  The rest may look like scribbles, but they are actually loops and leaves.

See how the hot pink pops on the variegated blue backing?  I think she made a good choice with the hot pink thread.  But then, I think all her colors work very well together.

If you know anything at all about me, by now you have figured out that I like to sneak little surprises into my quilting.  Leaves need bugs, so I added a couple of them on the leaves.  This is a “regular” old bug, but I put a lucky ladybug by Barbara’s name.  You can also see where I put the family members’ names into the quilting.

Fun, fun, fun!  I love to draw with thread!  If you haven’t tried drawing with thread yet, ya gotta try it!  Now I’d better get to work on decorating the house for Christmas and all the other stuff that goes with it.  🙁
