Remember I told you that Amy, at Park City Girl, is having another quilt festival to coincide with Fall Market in Houston? A virtual quilt show for all of us staying home…. I missed the spring show, but have decided to join in the fun for this fall.
Here is the link to the Quilt Festival main page – don’t forget to go back and take a look at all the wonderful quilts. Get a cup of coffee or you favorite beverage, visit the little girl’s room, and put the answering machine on and enjoy!
The quilt I decided to show you is one that actually started in 2002 as a Block of the Month that I did with my mother at a local quilt shop, The Quilt Sampler. It was a “primitive” applique and I did most of the blocks as the year went by….then in 2003 I met my hubby, late 2004 we had twins, and life got in the way for quite a while and the quilt sat unfinished. Well, I decided I was going to get it finished in 2007 in time for Christmas. I didn’t quite get it done for Christmas as I finished the binding on New Year’s Eve, December 21, 2007, but that was close enough for me!
I named the quilt “FINALLY! It’s Christmas!”
I quilted it myself on my Gammill and had a whole lot of fun trying different background fills in each block. Here is a gallery of the blocks and some close-ups of the quilting. I used some McTavishing, grid fills, freehand meander, and SID. You can click on each picture to see it enlarged. Hope you enjoy!
