A Christmas quilt
I finished quilting this fabulous old quilt for a client. It was hand pieced by her great aunt back in the 1930s. Taylor wanted it to look like a Christmas red work quilt.
I quilted this in two phases. First all the white thread, then the Statler quilted the red motifs. I doubled up the red thread so it would look a bit more thick.
The reindeer was my favorite
I loved the gingerbread house too.
I used an orange peel design all around the little hand pieced red and white squares. This took ages, but I sure love how it turned out!
Have a great day!
