Since it is Christmas, what better time to share "Merry Christmas Quilt" by Heart To Hand. This version was a BOM pieced and appliqued by Lisa Bongean for Primitive Gatherings available here. I believe Lisa mentioned that they may run it again as a BOM. I love this version!!! I warn you there are 41 photos up ahead!!! Lots of angles and shots of every block. The reason...2 photographers...2 perspectives!! We have a new camera and so we had to "play" with it a bit. :-) I have to admit, Scott did a great job. I will let the photos do most of the "talking." Some details first...14 thread changes!!! All So Fine by Superior. 2 layers of batting...Dream Green with a layer of Hobbs 80/20 in black over it. ENJOY!
I chose to quilt the borders and outline all the appliques first. Then once I got to the bottom of the quilt, I worked from the bottom back up quilting the background fill. To make sure my quilt did not distort in any way, I basted the background, around the appliques if there was space larger than the size of my hand.
The back of the quilt was pretty cool too!!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our family to yours!
