Christmas quilt

At Christmas time I always notice that I have only one Christmas wallhanging, and to me it isn't in the "right" Christmas colors. So I decided to do something about that and I made this red and white quilttop. I still have to quilt it, and I think I need to wash and even dry it in the dryer for an antique look... Let's hope that I can do that all before Christmas :-)

Very nice Christmas quilt. I think time maybe running low for all the quilting and washing. Who knows though, it can be done. Let us know when you are completed with the quilt.

Lucy,
Very pretty and perfect like all your handwork.
The bureau is wonderful. The mat the little bear is sitting on, it is your quilting too? You must have done that under a microscope the pieces are so small!!
Continuing to pray for your family and father...

Lucy, it's perfect! It can also be left out all year if you wish it...just beautiful!

I've been thinking the same thing...I NEED to make another Christmas wallhanging. Like you, I have one..and I'm not all that thrilled with it anymore. However, it's not getting done for this Christmas...but the ideas are brewing in my head for one to be made for 07!!
And, that man of yours!! What a guy!! It sounds like you two had a wonderful time, and the scenery is GORGEOUS!!
