Fabulous AMY is at it again! Blogger's Quilt Festival 2011~!
Thanks Amy for doing this again and again...
It's so much fun to flip through all the quilts to pick one favorite...
This time, it's my "Christmas Crosses 2010."
(am I predictable?)
Here's a link back to all the posts about this quilt
Sometimes, Simple is SOOO good! I had started this quilt and stuffed
it away for a year or two, then decided at the last minute last
Christmas I had to have it done...
The Above picture was when it was just a flimsy... It's the only hanging picture I had of it...
I learned a load about quilting when I took this quilt on... So much empty
space to fill in with interesting bits! The fact that i wanted this done by
Xmas maybe had something to do with the
fact that it all fell into place.. Perhaps it was a little Christmas magic!
I took the 4 stitches I new how to do well, and went for it.
Some WISE lady told me the only way you get better at quilting your quilts is to QUILT THEM.
Now that I look at this photo I see ONE RED CROSS that I missed! haha!
It's going to stay that way....
And best for last, the backing is a savored piece of Jennifer Paganelli RED & White.
It is truly one of my favorite quilts...
(well, next to my Kitchen sink quilt)
(and this year's Christmas quilt) LOL!
You'll have to tune in MUCH LATER to see that one..., like say, December!
