CHRISTMAS SAMPLER QUILT

I gave a peek into my UFO closet in yesterday's post.  If you have not seen it, scroll on down to the previous post.  I was asked what quilt top says "Holly" on it. That was about all you could see of it in the picture.   I could not find the photo I have shown before on my blog of this particular quilt.  I said I would post it again.  It has been done for a while and needs quilting.
It is difficult for me to pin a quilt of any size to the design wall, so it is not hanging very straight.  The pattern set I used is by Cheri Saffiote-Payne.  I do not think it is available any longer but you could e-mail and ask her about it if you are interested.  I made a couple changes to the quilt design as I made the blocks.

Enjoy!

Karen

I don't like all her designs, but that one is precious. How will you quilt it with the applique? Hand or machine? I have a quilt with an applique border that I cannot decide how to quilt!

Did you see that Dawn at Linen Closets has a FREE BOM with wonderful applique so far? Today's post was a rooster. You would have to go back to older post for a couple of the others...I think you would enjoy!

Colleen said...

Ohhhh my oh my, I think one of my top five favorite quilts of all time. I splurged and got this kit earlier this year, but I have yet to start it because I wanted some others to get done first. Your quilt is so gorgeous Karen! You SERIOUSLY are the Queen!

Seeing your quilts reminds me why i love to quilt!! Absolutley inspiring and so much my style too!! I love Cheris quilts. She was the designer who first started me off a few years back with her CHristmas Quilts book. I love love love the CHristmas one and Im itching now to find the pattern.

From the looks of this quilt, as well as the picture of your UFO closet, I would love to be able to spend a couple of hours in that closet. What a wonderful place to be.

Rose Marie said...

Adorable quilt top!

I'm making an effort to get my tops quilted up. After spending so much time on them, I'm longing to have them quilted so that they get used instead of sitting in my trunk.

You sure have a great collection of tops!!!! :o)
