Ready For Christmas, Not Yet

Melanie and i have been working on a sorta secret project. we both started with the same pattern. & the same fabric bundle. i challenged her to work it up & see what we would both do with the same stuff. click here to see Melanie's.i can only wish that my living room was this tidy.an empty dining room table. a family must live here. or a quilter must not live here.my sister is laughing. she knows i cleared off table to take pic & then put everything back.do i need to tell you how much i like the back.mostly Moda Shangri-La fabric. a strip of Moda Roman Holiday fabric. an old Alexander Henry flannel. Cotton Way Pattern. December Table Topper #4012. DMC perle coton.more of the back. more of the stitching. more of my sister's clean floor.

That is wonderful Karen- your hand quilting is so neat and straight! Isn't it amazing how we could end up with something so different! Well done and thank you for a wonderful project.

That is adorable! I like the front with the letters, and the beautiful fabrics that you show off so well in the borders :-)
The backing is fantastic! I love the snowmen! They are too cute. This will certainly be a great quilt to keep you warm during the holidays :-)
