CHRISTMAS 101 COMPLETE

I am on a roll finishing some UFO projects.  Quilts that were to the finished flimsy stage and awaiting machine quilting.  I finished "Christmas 101".  A Nativity design by Jan Patek.  I used most of the same fabrics that were used in the sample quilt.  They are from the Remembrance line.  I did not have all the same exact fabrics so I substituted where needed from stash.

I am working on machine quilting another Christmas quilt that has been to the flimsy stage for about two years.  I hope to finish it up tomorrow or the next day.

I attended a Christmas lunch today at a friend's home.  She is very much into prim style and it is such a treat to see all her Christmas decorations.  There were six of us.  All prim style lovers.  Besides me, there were two bloggers there that you might know.  Carol from Brown Quilts and Lynda Hall from Primitive Pieces by Lynda.  Carol took a photo.  Maybe she will put it on her blog.  We spent some time lamenting about how we have no local or even within a couple hours drive prim style quilt shops.  Or even ones that would have a row of prim style fabric.

Time to get some stitching done.

  2. Your quilt came out beautifully, that is one I will do too, got the pattern for my bday. I love using homespuns on bible pieces, and got some nice ones for my stash, to use in the new pieces.

  7. Your quilt is lovely, such a nice addition for Christmas. Am sure it will be treasured for many Christmas years.

    I share your lament about local prim, quilt, needlework stores, they are disappearing before my very eyes!

  8. Great quilt. I think that reproduction and/or primitive quilt shops are few and far between. I am lucky to have two near by.

  12. Very nice! Sounds like a fun time with friends. We don't have any LQS with primitives either. We really don't have a LQS... vacuum shops with fabric is more like it!

  13. Another beautiful finish Karen!
    It really is hard to find shops that cater to Primitives these days.
    At least you have wonderful friends close by to share your love of Primitives!

    Seasons Greetings!

  17. First, I want to say how much I love your quilt. I'd love to make that one in what else?...wool-on-cotton, of course.

    What I want to say is I know exactly how you feel about prim/country decorating in Florida. We lived in south Florida for 15 years and no matter how much I tried to "like" the typical pastel-type life style that IS Florida, I never felt totally comfortable in my own home. It is virtually impossible to find anything prim down there and on line shopping was just getting started in the late 90's early 2000's.

    Thank goodness for the internet. Right, Karen? *wink*
