Christmas Quilt Show 2010

I am excited to be participating in my second online quilt show!  You can see the other entries here.  My entry is for a candle mat I made for a swap.

I really enjoyed this first swap of my reborn quilting life!  I participated in many in the my past quilting life-I have a trunk full of blocks waiting to be made into tops(future New Year’s Resolution 2011).

I actually ordered the charm pack of Moda’s 12 Days of Christmas especially for this.  Modern fabrics!  Even though I have a box full of lovely Christmas prints I really loved these fabrics!  I machine quilted it on my old Kenmore.  I'm still trying to figure that out.  i do love the look of outline quilting and straight lines. I also took the extra charms and made a mug rug and one of my special coasters.  I even have enough left for another candle mat!  Wow!  All that from one charm pack!  I thought I took a picture of them all but…Fa La La La La!  Merry Christmas!

 

Keep dreaming…Colleen

Sweet! now that you are using modern fabrics you got to get a new machine that is easier and more fun to use! I was released from my Kenmore and have never looked back.....what a clunker!

Happy Sewing
