It's that time again! The biggest blog tour of quilts thanks to Amy!
Here is my submission. A wallhanging I designed called, "Holiday Trees".
I'm finding it tricky to photograph - the tan is a much more sparkly gold, but I think you get the idea!
This quilt taught me a lot about myself as a quilter who dreams of being a quilt designer.
I can do it. I can do it quickly. But.
I don't enjoy making two - of anything (bags being the exception!)
I actually had this quilt top finished in time for last Christmas, but couldn't find the drive to write the pattern (still can't!)
I have finished quilting it now and binding it. It measures 32.5" x 26".
I used up some more of my husband's Granny's stash for the backing, and some other older fabric for the hanging sleeve.
This wallhanging will be a gift this Christmas.
And, while there is no pattern for this quilt, it HAS inspired me to make another tree holiday quilt. This time, I wrote the pattern as I pieced. It's almost ready!
Thanks for visiting today. Be sure to check out the many wonderful entries to the festival.
Thanks Amy, for all of your work!
