Christmas Trees and Snowballs Quilt

Posted on

I haven’t posted any quilts lately, so I thought I would show you one that I finished recently. My customer Liz created the top by combining two patterns from Natalia Bonner’s blog/website (piecenquilt). Liz always does wonderful work and it’s a pleasure to work on her tops. She suggested wind or clouds in the blue,  a feeling of snow drifts in the white, and perhaps snowflakes in the snowball blocks. The picture below doesn’t show all of the quilt, I think there were actually five rows of blocks below the tree panel. READ MORE...



Jingle Bell Dance Quilting Pattern

I’m LOVING this new pattern that the IQ is sewing out today. It’s called ‘Jingle Bell Dance’ by Judy Lyon, and I found it at Legacy Quilting. Doesn’t it look wonderful on Roxy’s beautiful Christmas Block of the Month?? I set it up at 6-1/2″ high, flipped “Y” on the alternate rows, and offset it 50%. (That’s the technical stuff for all the robotic quilters out there – if you have no idea what I just said, don’t worry about it, it’s not something you need to know! LOL) I’m using Signature Mustard thread and Quilter’s Dream Poly batting. I hope Roxy likes it as well as I do, if not, maybe she’ll wrap it up for me for Christmas!!! READ MORE...
