I love it when my numbers take a jump!  I completed my Christmas Wish quilt this week.  I had planned to finish it in time for the holidays last year, but forgot to pack a few small pieces of Christmas fabric when we headed south last fall!  Since I have decided not to buy any new Christmas fabric until my holiday stash has shrunk, I waited to complete it when we returned north.

This was a busy quilt, so most of the quilting is "in the ditch" with a few curvy lines in the 16-patch blocks.  I quilted a simple continuous line in the final border, and used a striped fabric for the binding.

There were a few small, wholecloth areas for some free form quilting fun!

  1. Your numbets are great!!! I'm trying so hard to get my usage up this year, but I've been way too busy quilting others' quilts. I like what I see on your Christmas quilt. Nice quilting too.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
