SewCalGal is hosting a virtual Christmas quilt show and I thought I'd join in. Here is my entry --
This started as a Thangles "buck-a-block" program at the Village Sampler quilt shop in Big Flats, NY in 2007. My friend Susan and I talked each other into signing up, even though the last thing we really needed was another quilt project. Neither one of us had a Christmas quilt at the time, so we decided to go with the green and white colorway, thinking that we'd add some Christmas fabrics in the end. I didn't really care for the sashing and setting that the pattern called for, so I just set my blocks on point and added the larger squares, the red sashing and fussy-cut poinsettia cornerstones. Then I quilted it on my HQ16 in mid-2008 and gave it to my husband's brother and sister-in-law as a thank you for being our hosts when we visited family for Thanksgiving that year.
I guess I still don't have a Christmas quilt...oh wait, maybe Susan is secretly working on hers to give to me?!
