2012 Christmas Quilt Show

I am entering a quilt into the 2012 Christmas Quilt Show!!  I dug deep to get the courage to do so and you can too!!  Find the details here.


My quilt is 'Vintage Holiday' that I completed just over a month ago.  I adore this quilt!  I love the fabrics I used and I love how easy the pattern came together [pattern by Camille Roskelley].  I used snowflake fabric by Deb Strain and some plaids I had been collecting for quite some time!  A really cozy quilt!


I live in a little English cottage and it suits the space perfectly!  I plan to hang it on the one plain (and big enough) wall that we have in the whole cottage which is in the living room.  This should make the whole place look really festive, especially when I put the 'Charlie Brown' Christmas tree up!!  One of my favourite parts about this quilt is that I did some free motion quilting (very brave of me) and I love how it looks on the scrappy back of the quilt!



So that is my entry!  I have only ever made one Christmas quilt and I love it!  Do pop over to Quilting Tutorials and check out all the other entries too!

I love this quilt and am very glad you decided to enter it. I made a bunch of Christmas ornaments one year that looked a lot like your ornament balls, but your blocks look tons better than my ornaments did! They looked like the dog had mauled them right from the beginning!

Oh that's really cute!
