Okay, I have a suspicion that Christmas is barely on your radar screen (or is it?)…. but The Quilter‘s “Quilting for Christmas” is hitting the newsstands on October 12th. My Christmas Fiesta is featured:
This quilt uses fabrics from At Home for the Holidays and Hip Holidays by Henry Glass. These fresh color palette gives a very cherry and slightly different look to the traditional Christmas green and red colors. And I love the effect.
See what I mean?
This 36″ x 36″ wallhanging/table topper was fun to put together.
What was even MORE fun was quilting it! I used Hobbs‘ Tuscany Silk Batting and Aurifil‘s Mako 50 Cotton threads. Again, I quilted this quilt on my domestic machine. The feathers were “hyper-quilted” with green and white threads.
You may purchase a kit (includes fabrics, backing and binding) for this project from Heartbeat Quilts. Oh, by the way, the quilt will also be displayed at Heartbeat Quilts. So, if you are in the vicinity of Hyannis, MA – do drop by the say hi to the staff and my Poinsettia Fiesta quilt.
Poinsettias are one of my favorite Christmasy things to include in my Christmas decorations. What is/are yours?
Thanks for stopping by. I am slowly working on responding to your emails/comments in the reverse order they are received. Have a lovely day!
