I'm so excited to finally be able to share this quilt with you and the timing is perfect as the quilt has a Christmas theme. I quilted this for Raye back in March so we don't have this much snow yet. Raye actually made two appliqué quilts this year that I quilted for her and each are gifts for her two daughter in-laws for their birthdays which was this month. I'll share the second quilt in my next post.
The quilt is called Celebrate the Season and was a series of 9 individual patterns by The City Stitcher - Designs by Janet Miller. Raye did all the appliqué by hand with a blanket/buttonhole stitch and still had a few embellishments to add on the snowman and gingerbread men after I was done quilting it.
I had fun quilting swirls in the borders, different background fills in the blocks and did a bit of ruler work to make stars in the green squares.
I though this would be a fun quilt to show the before and after pictures as the quilting really did change the whole feel of this quilt.
It's not a quilt until it is quilted! :)
