Christmas Quilt

When I entered a quilting group about twenty years ago, everyone was working on an Eight Point Star quilt. They showed me how to proceed, and I did my first quilt using this pattern. With the enthusiasm of the beginner I finished it quickly and started at once a second one with the same pattern : this Christmas lap quilt. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. Every Christmas since twenty years I enjoy taking it out from the closet and display it on a sofa.

  9. What a beautiful treasure. I especially love the braid (I think that's what it's called) quilting just inside the border. Looks like it was fun to do! Hanging on the door with the wreath and the keys...what a welcome! I so enjoy your posts. Merry Christmas!
