It's that time of year when I'm hearing the old familiar tunes and smelling the Peppermint Mochas at Starbucks! It must be Christmas! I just finished my Christmas Quilt for this year. It's hard to show the detail involved because it's such a large quilt, but I sure enjoyed making it. It is a Crabapple Hill pattern by Meg Hawkey. She was in the Seattle area two years ago and I was fortunate enough to take a class from her. I have gotten hooked on Redwork and am now working on another one of her designs. All the blocks are stitched in Red DMC floss and I used a variety of reds, whites and beige fabrics. I had it quilted by Krista Withers and she is an absolute genius. I wish you could see the beautiful detail of her work! If you click on the picture of the full quilt you can see a closer look at all the blocks.
Hanging this quilt was like putting up a Christmas tree for me! I can now sit in my chair and enjoy the snow people having a good time!
