Sew Cal Gal’s 2011 Christmas Quilt Show.

Posted on | November 28, 2011 | 78 Comments

It is once again time for Sew Cal Gal’s Christmas Quilt Show. This is a wonderful showcase for many Christmas and Winter quilts from around the globe. Take some time to visit  Sew Cal Gal to see some great ideas and be inspired.  (Click on the link above.) Thanks, Darlene, for all the work you do to prepare this show.
I managed to finish the binding on my quilt over the weekend. Not too hard as it is a smaller stitchery quilt. It measures 33 X 41 inches.
This little quilt is a pattern from The Birdhouse by Natalie Bird called TIS THE SEASON.  I wanted to stay with the red and green theme but didn’t stick to the traditional shades. The fabric colours were influenced by the embroidery threads.
They are lovely variegated threads from Cottage Garden Threads. This particular colour is called Running Postman. I just love that name! Here’s a few more blocks.
I did a very simple meander and loop in the quilting.
With a few stars thrown in.
The backing and binding were the same as fabrics used in the blocks.
Thank you so much to Sew Cal Gal for this amazing display of quilts and to the wonderful sponsors for their support, too.
Enjoy the quilt show!
