countdown

Today is 3 months until Christmas. THREE MONTHS! I've already been busy working on Christmas themed quilts; they seem to come earlier and earlier every year.

Bea pieced this beautiful winter/Christmas quilt.

quilted with Mini Starflower
I love this quilt. Bea's embroidery is beautiful.
I love the silver thread she used here and there.


I spent 14 hours quilting this next quilt for Hamels
14 very long hours. 


And you can't even see all the quilting lol. But that was the whole point. I kept it simple; outlined the appliques; did a double piano key in the outer board. A simple ribbon stitch in the inner borders. My favorite part of the whole quilt is the various backgrounds in each block.

I followed the patterns in the block backgrounds. The bell block is cross-hatched; the wreath straight line quilted. So simple.


I love how the border turned out.



This is another Hamels quilt. I love snowman and this quilt I love.

Now before I start getting asked, on both these quilts I did quilt right over the embroidery. It's not something I like to do but it's entirely possible to do. It's all up to the quilter and what the quilt owner wants done to their quilt.

I love the backing for this quilt.


And my favorite block


So three months until Christmas. I think it's time to start thinking about what gifts I'm making this year.

  1. Beautiful Christmas/Holiday quilts. I prefer to quilt through my embroidery - don't like when it poofs up. :-)

    It's fun to see the Snowmen A to Zzzz quilt because it's the one I'm working on now in redwork. :-)

  8. I have spent hours trying to locate the countdown quilt. I can't find your phone number?? A site called Quilting Tutorials is stating Countdown is free just download! Doesn't appear to be the case. All I'm interested in is buying pattern, please.

I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!

Thanx for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
