christmas quilt

One Christmas quilt top done.
Done. done. done.
I DO need to quilt it.
So technically it's not...
done. done. done.
I blogged about making the trees here.
As usual, I get excited about the top being complete
and I want to share it right away!!
DO you do that too??
This one uses a lot of scraps.
Most of the Christmas fabrics in my stash came from my
"quilt Mom", Gerda.
The scraps are kind of "dated", but the little scraps look great
when you update them with something
comtemporary like that black.
Don't you think?

    My newspaper square foundations for the trees were 12 1/2". Hope that helps. I think any size would do, though.
    Yes. I'll be sure to post a picture of it quilted....if that ever happens. ;)

  7. Beth, love your Christmas trees!!! Your fabric does not look dated at all. To me it is done when the top is pieced ;-) You know I show pictures before it is quilted...that's when mine look the best ;-)
