ANOTHER CHRISTMAS QUILT DONE

Another Christmas quilt completed.  It took me almost two years to get to this point.  The applique blocks are fused pieces with machine stitching around them.  A Jeanna Kimball pattern set was used for the quilt and the pattern set is out of print.  I found a copy of the set on Amazon but  the price is high.  You can see it here but I doubt anyone wants to pay $165.00 for it.  The pattern set does not include instructions on the order of sewing the blocks into sections and getting everything together.  A bit of a challenge to figure it out.  The completed quilt is on its way to my great grand-daughter.  It is about 68 inches long so plenty big enough to cover up with.  I think she will enjoy it.

Take time to sew today!
Karen

  30. Congratulations on finishing the quilt. It is on my list to finish up the blocks next year. I can remember a few years ago when the pattern was selling at high prices. But, if you look you can find them at reasonable prices. I just picked up one at Half Price Books for $8. It was only missing one "month" of patterns.
