Please forgive me. The Christmas season is always crazy busy for me, and this December we had the added bonus of our daughter graduating from college as a doctor of Chinese Medicine. Currently I am quilting one of my own quilts (on my holiday vacation) and I will fill you in on more details of my personal life then. For now, let me share Diane’s holiday quilt that I quilted for her in December.
It is a BIG quilt, so this picture doesn’t give a good shot of the full length.
Here’s a few more shots of close-ups. Diane did a great job of piecing, embroidering and applique on the entire quilt. I enjoyed quilting it, and it sure helped me get in the mood for Christmas this year – just what I needed to get me out of the doldrums.
For the most part, I quilted holly and swirls throughout the quilt, but I added “branches” to the trees, which you cannot see in any of these pictures. Diane chose a variegated red and green thread for the borders and trees and a cream color for the background.
What do you think? Would this put you in the mood for Christmas?
