Quilter’s World December 2009: Christmas Cheer

Happy Monday! I hope all is well with you. We enjoyed catching up with friends over the weekend. My Christmas Cheer quilt is featured in the December 2009 issue of “Quilter’s World“:

I am super pleased with the photography of the quilt! It is a “One Block Wonder” quilt made using one gigantic Storm at Sea block! The finished size is 60″ square:

The quilt used fabrics from “Once Upon a Christmas” by Benartex. I love love love the Christmas tree print fabric, and I love love love love the poinsettia print as well!

Dear friends at Rogers Sewing Center gave me the dipping bowls – my early Christmas present! How sweet is that?! They go PERFECTLY with my quilt! I am truly blessed with sweet sewing friends!

The quilting was done with Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton thread, top and bottom on my home machine. The red solid fabric was the perfect background to show off some free-motion quilting:

Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a lovely Thanksgiving Week!
