Quilts # 65 – 66 and a Bunch of Assorted Christmas Projects
This pretty much takes care of Christmas Projects made over the years.
The ones today are some of the first projects I made when I started quilting over 20 years. Most come out every year, it's fun to reminisce.
Merry Christmas and thanks for stopping by.
65 - Christmas Wreath
Can't remember where I found the pattern, but I still rather like this one.
The 3-D Bow just adds a little something to the ribbon border.
Again, a mixture of cotton and polyester, some machine quilting, some hand quilting.
Measures 30” x 30”.
66 - Christmas Bells
The Christmas Bells was the first Holiday wall hanging I ever made.
It is hand appliqued and has white pompons for the bell clappers.
Most of the fabric is polyester, the bells are cotton, measures 20” x 25”
The writing was hand embroidered and it was very sparsely hand quilted around the designs.
The pattern was from the very first quilting book I ever bought and it was not easy to come by, there were very few quilting books or magazine available in Canada in the late eighties.
We've come a long way, baby.
The little ribbon bows were machine stitched through to hold the layers together.
