It’s Christmas Quilt show time, and I’m ‘almost’ ready. And isn’t that the way it always is — no matter how much we prepare, there’s just a little more we want to do to be completely ready. This time, it’s the quilting – and it’s going on my frame today. Here’s my project.
This quilt show was the impetus to make a new wall hanging to go over the mantle. We moved into this house in July, 1994, and have had the same wall hanging over the mantle ever since. This is the year that will change. Thus, the “winter” rather than “Christmas” theme. It will be at least February before a spring wall hanging is created 🙂
The one I made is the “cool” version – and this is the “warm” version from EQ7:
And here are the details: I used Aurifil Mak0 50 wt cotton thread color 2805 for the embroidery and a four patch background of Fusions and batik prints. The batik is what gives me the “sparkle” with it’s round white snowy drop design. The Aurifil thread is fine and shimmery and “frosts” the applique shapes with an edge that I designed especially for quilts and quilting.
