Carrie's Christmas quilt

Carrie was given this quilt by our quilting guild. It is tradition to give a quilt top to the guild president whose term is ending. Carrie said she wanted a holly leaf pattern for the background and to just have fun with the blocks.

I quilted a different pattern in each group of blocks. Some of the blocks repeat. I like the circular pattern on the log cabin blocks. Strangely enough, it doesn't remind me of ornaments, but the circular glass pieces you find in doors in England and Wales.

Thanks Carrie!


  1. Lovely! The quilting really complements the piecing!

  2. Are you kidding me; does your bag of tricks even have a bottom? You amaze me, this is stunning!

  3. I knew you would figure something out for the blocks. can't wait to get my hands on that quilt! thanks!
