Christmas Quilt

Where did these last two weeks go -- I think I lost them.    Once again it is time to post to my Christmas Card Club where our hostess is Margret.  She sets the rules this go around and she has asked us to make a Christmas Card using two or more patterned papers.  I thought I came up with a pretty good idea and then I saw Christine's card and flipped out.  Her card is really wonderful - my idea but better.  Okay Christine - that is all the plugs you get from me!!!!!

I made a Christmas Quilt - not nearly as grand as what Annie can make.  She even quilts postcards - can you imagine that!!!

I'm getting ready for Christmas - ding dong the bells are going to ring!!





Thank you for taking the time to visit and leave a little love.
Sandy

This is quite amazing Sandy and it looks like it was a lot of work, but well worth it. I love the patchwork and then there is that awesome poinsettia.
This is a Christmas card anyone would love to get!

What a great way to use up all those tiny scraps of paper...we use our scraps of fabric in the same way so why not use papers, brilliant idea Sandy

Hi Sandy, hopefully you are well. Now to your enquiry as to a"harr" it's a sort of sea mist or fog, sometimes it burns off and the sun shines through, sometimes it doesn't.
Your card is stunning beautiful, I love your quilt design and that wonderful bloom, Kate X

Sandy I cannot believe it!!!!!! Truly astonishing that we both came up with the exact same idea, even down to the central die cut. Very spooky! This is a fabulous card though and I love it. HUgs Christine x

Annie said...

Well Sandy, you made me go look and Christine's card, so your limited plugs for her worked. And a plug for me too...aren't you a sweetie! But a tiny paper quilt is so much more than quilting a postcard. I love your quilted Christmas card! It's a beauty and you've got tons of patience to put that together! There will be one happy Christmas card recipient on your list this year!

This is a Fabulous Christmas quilt! Definitely got in all the dp for the challenge. I always love the quilted cards (too lazy to try to make one though! MoJo is totally on vacation just now).
