This week has seen record temperatures for an already hot hot summer. So to feel cooler I have been quilting two Christmas quilts and listening to holiday music.
First up is a Christmas Log Cabin by Kitty W. Kitty makes a Christmas quilt to be raffled off each year for an organization she supports. We always do a computer digitized design edge-to-edge. I really really like this year’s quilt and plan to purchase some tickets. I chose a cardinal and holly design based on the beautiful backing fabric.
Last fall Debby Maddy of Calico Carriage Quilts visited Cobblestone Quilters Guild and taught her Labyrinth pattern. Vicki E chose to do hers is glitzy Christmas fabrics. Vicki plans to enter this in our show next March so she wanted custom quilting. I really stepped out on this one with the gold feathers on the white. Contrasting thread scares me but I think this came out great and really amps up the design. There was a lot of white that needed to be filled. I did tiny straight line fill on the outer edge of the feather designs and pebbles on the inner part of the border.
I love the texture on the back.
