Quilt Almanac 2012

Christmas Hexagon Flowers, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, 2011


Cover girl! ....Me?

My Red and Green Christmas Hexagon Flowers quilt is on the cover of Quilt Almanac 2012!  

I just rcvd a copy today!  COOL!



Yep. There's my mug in print... LOL...  I've been savoring this quilt all season... I thought my Xmas Crosses quilt from last year, was my favorite... Well, move over Christmas Crosses, I have a new FAVORITE quilt in town!



I have to tell you. (shhhh, don't tell anyone)  I have a serious Christmas quilt problem... My 2012 quilt is on my design wall RIGHT NOW!...  But I guess you'll have to wait all year until you see that one too. ;-)


I cranked this quilt out in about 2 weeks.  Once I started, I could not stop....At the time I had my month at the One Block Over Bee, so 8 blocks were made by the OBO gals...Thanks ladies!
I had a lot of fun on the quilting... I got on the phone and called my friend Shelly, "How do I quilt this??" She was very helpful...I didn't want to mess it up after I did all that piecing to get it together!
Thanks Shelly!

Be sure to pick up a copy at you of Quilt Almanac 2012 at your LQS.

Jackie has it in her store too!

I'm very pleased with this quilt... ;-)
