Christmas Quilt Kit Finished

Again all over ruler work except the holly and the basket weave in the cross hatch.    Chose ruler work because  it is fast and easy,  had to have this finished up today so I can deliver the quilts tomorrow so  they can get the binding on.

This is a sample for the kits that are made up for Houston.   Sure was glad to get this off the frame so I can finish a baby quilt that I was working on.

out lining the large flowers

                                                 Mctavish  in the background (black)

out lined the border leaves added swirls

                                                   Back - used bottom line in the bobbin.   The border turned out pretty good considering  that I wanted the ovals at opposite  corners.   Wasn't paying attention. 

Out lined only the pattern that I wanted to stand out.

                                                       the added swirls coming off the vines

                                                      The border turned out pretty good.

Fast and easy ruler work

One of the quilts going to the Houston show

Combination of ovals and straight lines


Cut and pieced......   4 1/2 x 4 1/2 squares

    Amazing how you can arrange the blocks to get different looks from 1/2 square triangles

Now to finishing sew the blocks together then add the border.    This quilt measurements  40 X 40 finished

                                          Fabric Choice,  which I love.....   then the pattern 
I had several pattern drawn up but they just didn't speak to me like this one.   It is perfect for this fabric.

Old River Road FINISHED

Cutest red work quilt ever......   my friend embroidered and constructed the blocks.

I love red and white quilts.

Would love to have this one in my house.

Just enough background fill to compliment her work

Taking this baby to guild to show off!!

One of my favorite blocks is the umbrella with the rain drops.
I wished I had the patience to embroider.   Maybe one day....
