Ready For A Christmas Quilt.

Posted on | December 9, 2015 | 13 Comments

This quilt has been in the works for quite a while, so it is great to see it finally finished and ready to hang for the festive season.

This is a Viv’s Creations pattern by Viv Robinson.

It is made using raw edge applique. I also chose to do a lot of the embroidery with free motion quilting.

Most of the fabrics are by Lynette Anderson with a few extras added in.

And one of the presents.

I changed the sides from the original pattern to reindeer and holly instead of words.

I kept the quilting to simple meandering and used many of the fabrics from the range in the backing and binding.

The quilting was a cream thread but the applique was done using a variegated thread.

Hooray for another finish.

This week seems to be the start of many Christmas get togethers. I have already had two Christmas break up functions and have two more on Thursday and Friday. And then another three next week.

I will certainly be in the Christmas spirit when the big day arrives.

I do hope you are enjoying all the fun catch ups that occur at this time of year.

Cheers, Karen
