This is Diane’s High Strung quilt and it is a pattern by Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks ( Quilt Patch). I knew right away I was going to cross hatch the squares and give it that traditional quilted texture. I stitched in the ditch around the applique and stippled the background with Microquilter beige thread. I used green So Fine thread on top and green Bottom Line in the cross hatching. The batting is Quilters Dream Blend. Diane said she was going to add some embellishments to the quilt, like small clothes pins to where the stockings are hung along the ric-rac.
